Notes - :)
God, why did this chapter have to be so boring. The brunette sighed as she reached the end of the bag, feeling a bit of relief at the thought that there were only ten pages left. But then she remembered they were front and back, which made it more like twenty pages covered in microscopic font. Realistically she was no closer to the end than when she started. But she had to keep going. Zoey knew herself, and she knew that once she lost focus it was over. There would be no going back for her. The young woman sighed once more, this one much more melancholy than the last, as she turned the next page to continue reading.
A random voice beside her startled her out of her monotonous trance, eliciting a sharp gasp and jump as she turned her head to look at the source of the sound. Zoey gave a breathless chuckle, closing her eyes and shaking her head before resuming eye contact with a sheepish grin. “You scared the hell out of me.” A moment later her gaze returned to the textbook in front of her, taking a deep breath and pursing her lips. Green eyes rolled, then narrowed as she said, “The most interesting thing about this book is the ancient Roman obsession with drawing, painting, and sculpting phalluses.” She shrugged her shoulders as she looked up. “I’m Zoey, by the way.”
