"Yeah Dalton. Names on the doors?" She seemed to relax a little at my response. I was short and sharp but I guess she didn't notice. As her smile started to soften to something natural I felt my face contort slightly at the realisation that every little detail of the speaking face in front of me made my skin crawl. Why is she even here? She is a human. Humans do not belong here?!

Almost like I was turning to.. stone?

I hate meeting new people. 

The End
