Wreckage by Shannon Barber

            The music was loud.  It drowned the sound of the buzzing motor and the surrounding world.  Angry little ideas swirled in her head; she accelerated, faster and faster, until her thoughts were suspended in a freefall of speed and noise. 
            Julie’s cell biology lab would begin in half an hour.  I feel like shit, she thought. Debate over.
            Going to class was the last thing that she needed right now, anyway.  Playing nice with the Stepford students while in the back of her mind she was counting down the minutes to when she would be evicted was not her idea of a relaxing Friday afternoon.  She would have to find something to do — a distraction that would numb her.
