It seemed it gave care and an idea. Jimmy hold my hand. She said realizing if this gambit did not work she'd have no time to regret her error. Jimmy grasped her palm for the first time that day.

Well there fists fall but their words hurt more the year shift the setting changes the attackers change but the violence and the taunts remain filtered through a mind.
