Mar 11E143N: Flak goes where/there

A short exercise from a workshop class I’m in right now. This is the first draft; I don’t know if I’ll ever work further on it. We had to write about an event from our past in scene, and then in reflection. I chose the first time I ever went to Young Anime Otaku, Inc. (The CPS anime club.)
