Last quote by Nick Cooper

There we stayed for two hours while the winds threw our belongings against the door behind us, as if the storm personally knew we were hiding here. As the shattering of glass and the thumping of our belongings on the bathroom door sounded off behind us, Jon and I looked at each other and we now had a new fear.feedback

I was fortunate enough to make the last ferry out on Saturday night and leave the island.feedback
