Writing Challenge: Continue the Story

Afterwards, he gets up, throws on his only black jacket, takes the car key, and hits the road. Crazily thinking of committing suicide, on a highway, he very fast drives his car. In the…

The Proofs

There was a man who worked in an office. He often came to work late, though it was still in tolerant limit. He also went home hurriedly once the working hour ended, at the last second. But oftentimes, he would come back to office after an hour to work overtime.

Everyone in the office was wondering what was wrong with that person. They investigated him. One found that he went to the hospital in the morning, so did the other find in the evening, after work. They discussed about the…
