The road was slick, I could feel it through the tires. She was saying [[something|Questions]], not in English, I couldn't work out what it was at first. I was concentrating on the [[road|Before The Bridge]].
She'd been sitting there at the front of the [[classroom|Class]] when I came in, exactly where I was [[expecting|Her File]] her to be.
A new [[home|Snow]], a new beginning.
It feels like it's always [[snowing|Always Snowing]].
It was raining the day I [[died|News Report]], it had been raining so much recently that I didn't take it personally...

A major US defense contractor that most people will have never heard of. The hours were longer than average, the pay slightly better, the health insurance came with a dental plan.
I got the call while I was at [[work|Work]], a voice I didn't recognise. No first names, something about my [[wife|Memories]], the baby, the name of a hospital. I don't remember the specifics, just that the [[tears|Grief]] made it hard to drive.
The bridge was coming up, we were nearly there, it was almost [[time|Waiting...]].
Be glorious, our free motherland!\nA reliable stronghold of peoples' friendship!\nThe Party of Lenin, the strength of the people,\nLeads us to the triumph of Communism!

The [[file|KGB]] had described what she looked like, though as with any description it didn't do justice to the person she was.
Couple Dead in Perkiomen Creek crash.\n\nLate on the evening of the 23rd a silver [[Ford]] lost control on a stretch of Paper Mill Road in Douglass (Mont.) and overturned.\n\nThe victims, a man and a woman in their late thirties, are both believed to have drowned when their vehicle submerged beneath the waters of the heavily flooded creek.
