I hope y’all like it! I meant to stay true to the comic, but then I added extra dialogue and stuff b/c I’m terrible at following any plan ever.
Alex was so done.
He was exhausted, soaking wet, and he had to be up entirely way too early in the morning. And yet, he still had so much to do.
Make flashcards for microeconomics. Study for torts. Watch an online lecture.
He climbed the stairs to his dorm room, trying to ignore the way his hands were starting to shake. His textbook was soaked, probably ruined. Which he didn’t have time for. Or the money. Or the mental stability.
No time, no time, no time.
By the time Alex pushed his way through the door, the shaking had moved from his hands to his shoulders. They were started to tremble. He blamed it on the cold rather than the panic starting to unfurl in his stomach.
“Hey, Alex!” John was grinning from his desk. “You’re back late.”
Why was he so happy? How could he be so happy? Why was everyone happy and content, and Alex couldn’t seem to stay afloat? Why was he weak? Why was he even here?
