"I uh... I need to go to the bathroom." Davi mumbled then nearly knocked over his chair as he hastily stood up. "Bye."
He bashed the bathroom door open, immediately striding to the sink, gripping the edges, as if to hold on for dear life. He looked at the mirror, seeing a face he had seen many times.

with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
