Fellowship and Shenanigans

T’was 25 days before Christmas and all throughout Joshua not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. The textbooks were laid on the tables with care in hopes that good grades soon would be there. The students were nestled all snug in their chairs while visions of passing tests whirled in the air. I […]
