What's the worst that could happen?
Wed Feb 7, 2018 19:00

Gary could feel his eyes widen and jaw begin to drop, while he listened to Amelia run over the suggested steps. He could literally feel the wave of anxiety starting to draw him in before crashing over and drowning him in a panic attack. She was suggesting talking to people, a lot of people. Then after that, to go talk to teachers, and try to convince them that they should back his idea. After that was talking to even more people, the older students and convince them to do something for him. That was all crazy, there was no way he could do that.

He had started feeling awful homesick by the end of the year. "My summer was pretty good. I don't know if I could use the word boring to describe it, but it was mainly just hanging out with Dad and friends." That cursed demilitch had beaten them again over the summer.
