I remember waking up to shufflings and noisy footsteps all around me. I opened my eyes and tried to adjust them to the  light in the room, all this time, I still wasn’t sure where I was. Then almost immediately, like someone had thrown a glass of cold water in my face, it hit me…

What I miss about C4

My Best Friend
