Rachel was your endgame, I said, remembering the words on the picture.
I think I will. She walked off with a little spring in her step.I crossed the living room to the kitchen and opened the door to the garage. The sound of Paint it Black blasted me along with the heat, and I shut the door quickly behind me so they didn’t lose the cool air in the house.
