Distortion

Only to cry...Read On

Her thick bushy tail held low as she prowled and rising...Read On

In that other universe, we are the lucky ones. In that other universe, we have finally made it. In that other universe, we never experienced what we experienced here.

In that other universe, we always...Read On
