    Another Story of the Big, Bad City

    It happened just last Wednesday. I was on my way home, sitting in a bus, impatiently waiting for the traffic to move. When I got to my stop where I was supposed to change bus, I got off in a manner I thought was my usual. But I guess I bent a little too far and I felt...

    My Accident Happened Last Year

    Me and this girl aren't that close anymore (for different reasons,) but we still love each other very much (like family.)  We used to always randomly wrestle with each other.  She's taller and heavier than me, so she usually won. One day, I was sitting on the floor...
