Henry slammed on the breaks on and smacked my face on his neck, flipped me over his shoulder and I landed on my feet. I wanted to kill him for stopping at a 2 ft fence and trying to kill me in the process. My back was/is jacked up but it's ok ill live.


  1. A lot of your answers are close to what mine would be! Going to do this on my blog. :)

    1. lol it's a newly formed opinion from experience ;)
