with a hug, the way friends do.

One of the
Oud held up his glowing Orb as the friends gave their order. Above their heads
the ceiling lights dimmed, there was a buzzing sound and then they were alright

hell, yes, let’s get out of here,’ Donna said.
As they sat

because as they turned into the car park a familiar blue 1950’s Police Box
