Book 1, Chapter 30

The next morning found Ean running into work an hour late. “I hate to admit it,” he confessed, “but as bad as some aspects of my job are, it isn’t really that bad. No-one comes back to the break room unless there’s something seriously wrong. So aside from bringing in the mail and running out the coffee, I actually get a lot of time to myself here.” He paused to catch his breath.

“What with The Gang constantly invading my home,” he ironically added, “this is more of a private sanctuary than the apartment is.”

“Uh… that’s not ironic,” he told me before jogging into the break room – where a stranger looked up at his entrance.

Ean yelped in surprise and tried skidding to a halt. Unfortunately, his feet didn’t stop quite as fast as the rest of him: they slipped out from under him and he fell backward, smacking his head against the floor.
