My friends and I stood in the line near the resorts catering truck. There were a few lines but apparently everything was pre packed so each took a plate and went off to eat. Everyone was so absorbed in their food they didn’t see Miss Preston jump out of my car and make a bee line to the ladies bathroom. I nearly choked on my scramble eggs when I spotted Mr Stevens follow her, with her overnight bag in hand.
“So you two did the dirty deed last night?” Jack asked curiously.
“No. She showed up this morning and annoyed me. I told
Mrs Ward surprised me when she grabbed me for the first dance. She was slightly drunk and off balance but I think I handled it like a pro, making sure she never tripped and if she did, I would catch her mid fall and correct her balance.I still saw no sign of Miss Sheldon but a couple of boys were disappearing one by one into the far cabin and coming out minutes later. I went up to Mr Stevens and pointed it out to him. He nodded and walked with me. We were absolutely astounded by what we saw when we walked in. I was up early the next morning, due more to the fact that I couldn’t sleep than anything else. I got dressed in my car and got out. I took everything out of the car and placed it in the trailer. I was done just as the first kids started leaving the cabins and heading to the bathrooms. I was ready and waiting when Miss Preston and Miss Sheldon came out, the latter looking thoroughly confused and disoriented.“Where are we going?” she asked worriedly when Miss Preston brought her to me.“I have received instructions to take yo

I was up early the next morning, due more to the fact that I couldn’t sleep than anything else. I got dressed in my car and got out. I took everything out of the car and placed it in the trailer.

I missed the first day of the team building exercises but I knew I wouldn’t be so lucky the second day. I woke around five am when Miss Preston got up to get out of my car. I waited for a little while and got my clothes together for a shower and got out to follow through on my plan. After the shower I went out to where the catering truck stood, waiting on early stranglers like myself. I was one of the first and got a surprised look from the chef that was still busy with the bacon in the pan.“You up early. I don’t have anything fo
She woke me at five am when she got up to get out again. This time I was wide awake when I smelled the toast and bacon. I suddenly realised I was ravenous. I got dressed and made my way to the food truck, feeling the stiffness in my muscles.I stretched when I got to the truck and yawned. A coffee was placed in front of me almost immediately.“Morning you.” She told me with a smile.&ldqu
It felt as if I was flying. I felt the air play with my hair and heard the dull thud of what sounded like fan blades. My body felt confined, as if bound head and foot. I was confused but a light shown into my eyes, first one then the other.“Patient’s pupils are reacting to stimuli. ETA five minutes.” The distant voice above me said “Hang in there kid. You’ll be all right.” Fairly soon a door opened to my left and I was taken from the confined space. It was only when I was placed on a gurney that I realised that
It was one of my darkest days yet when I found out that I seemed to be paralysed from the waist down. I had them turn the radio off for the first time in days. I lay in my quiet room and sulked for a couple of days. The visitors didn’t know what to do with me. Things changed after a few days. I started having prickling sensations in my right foot. I couldn’t feel a lot but the doctors where very pleased that the sensation was starting to return to my foot. Then my left leg started to cramp and spasm. The doctors told me it was a good thing, even though the pain almost became unbearable. It was only when I could no longer sleep from the pain that I allowed them to give me pain killers a
The weeks flew by and before I knew it, the wedding day was upon us. My parents argued for days before the wedding but I was getting stronger each day so my father gave in to my mother’s wishes and we went to the wedding.I refused to put on a suit for the wedding so instead I wore jeans and a new button up shirt my mother had bought for the occasion. She made me wear black lace ups instead of the boots I usually wore.I got the surprise of my life when we got to the church though. The groom and the best men stood outside decked out in their t
The room was dark and quiet, with only the sounds from outside the room dimly filtering in through the closed door. The burning sensation had eased into a dull ache. I closed my eyes again and tried to sleep, wondering how long I had been in that bed. I head the squeak of the door hinges and opened my eyes again.It was only a nurse who came to check on me.“Nurse.” I said hoarsely and t
