He needed a new girlfriend. She always thought he'd fail.
He looked at his phone again. "Thank god" was the reply.
He was just about to put his phone in his pocket when he remembered Ashley. Ashley was one of his friends from up North. He decided to send her a text too. "Went camping all by myself and will be home safe soon AAR" her reply was quick,she must be bored. "AAR?" He chuckled. "Yep, means 'against all risk'"
"LMAO. Risk? That's hilarious."
"I know, right? Meghan was worried I'd fail."

"No, I would've told you not to get
