Diane briskly walked out of the lecture hall after just finishing the final exam of her freshman year at Ball State University. Hitting the steps in front of the building in a light, skipping run, she tossed her backpack in the backseat of the waiting Mustang GT convertible as she approached.

“How’d it go?” Jack asked, as he mashed the gas pedal and squealed off leaving a cloud of burnt rubber. He noticed an exaggerated eye roll come from his high school sweetheart, who he’d been dating since the summer between their sophomore and junior years of high school. “Well, at least it’s over,” he offered before anxiously changing the subject.
