a scary elevator experience-the pulleys that caused the elevator to climb weren’t working right so it slipped back, slamming us back down i grabbed onto charles and he calmly pressed buttons for the next highest floor so we could get off. finally the elevator let us off at eighteen. we’d been slammed four or five times. some people spend their entire lives in fear and dread. i refuse to be like that. if that had been the end for charles and me, at least we spent it in each other’s arms. we survived and we’re here. it’s a beautiful day.
