I had not always been cautious of other people. They did not play fair. I was afraid of being near them. Yet they find there way to me, ruining my day.

As my anger calm down, I went back out to realize that I was partner up with the person; I prayed not to get partnered up with. That next morning was even colder than yesterday.
