Cassie stuffed her hands into the pocket of her felt coat, keeping her head down and letting her long blond curls to cover her face; the less people saw of her the better. The wind picked up a bit, sending her into violent shivers and she picked up her pace to get back home as quickly as possible. Without really watching where she was going Cassie collided with a passing stranger and knocked her to the ground.

“I’m so sorry! I should’ve been watching where I was going.” She said quickly, grabbing the girl’s hand to help her up.
