Sample text

It turned into one of the weird nights of that time, a night when I think I wanted to die… or maybe it wasn’t so dramatic. Maybe I just wanted to let go and become Ryan. It started like most nights. I hopped on the bed, turned on the TV, and started tossing back beers. I lost myself in the TV glow and let the booze buzz flush through my body. Only, there wasn’t a buzz.
