Sudeki - Part 1 - New Brightwater 2General Arlo had his back to the gate as I opened it. Finally I caught a break. I ran over as silently as I could and joined the end of the line. He didn't seem to notice.Sudeki - Part 1 - New Brightwater 2 by aminelovercantdraw
"Late again Tal," he drawled turning to face me. He came over and began to yell at me, but I zoned out. I had heard this speech many times before.

I am a commercial artist with around two decades' worth of experience, with much of that time having been spent working in the video games industry and about seven years as a self-employed freelancer.
