E39 The End of Juniors

E34 Colomendy Continued

Like I mentioned in the previous episode I went to bed and knew I had avoided a serious beating from the deputy head, Phil.I went straight to sleep when I got into bed despite the noise and confusion from the dorm room. I think a big part of this was the adrenaline leaving my body.Continue reading “E34 Colomendy Continued”
