This Time I'm Ready To Run.

DayDream: 7

GREAT BRITAN JUNE 2014

It’s been some time. Luna started fresh.

Or so she thought.

“Blossom” her boyfriend calls her new name from the kitchen.

She hops off the chair to answer him. She loves James.

“Yes,”

“Do you have money? Me and my friends are going out tonight.”
