“Everybody Fights” – Part 3

First time reading? Start at the beginning here. The fire alarm screwed with Val’s focus. The grating siren was so overpoweringly loud that it made it hard to pay attention to anything else.

“Everybody Fights” – Part 2

First time reading? Start at the beginning here. The worst part was not knowing what the hell was going on. Moreen had heard an almighty crash a few minutes ago. Everyone in the office had.
