inhabitants which I can see from my window. I hope I can find someway

of keeping the flat. I’m sure everything will be alright in the end,

down the glass, slowing down before reaching the bottom, leaving a

lake on the window sill. I sigh loudly and the window clouds up in

front of me. I slowly reach forward and touch the window, my

fingertips feel tender and the cold runs down my spine. I take my hand

away, leaving a mark on the window which faded slowly. I rest my head

on my knees and I fall into a daze, staring aimlessly out of the


I snapped back to reality as Emily started screaming again.
