Okay, its a fair trek for something so simple as a party but its certainly something to get my mind off tormenting thoughts. Knowing the Laindon Rangers, it would be drinks, dinner and cake, who could say no to cake?
I met some of their other leaders whom they’ve never mentioned before, can’t see why not they were both Witty and Sociable.

I want to know more than I already do and ask some pretty dumb questions, the first being along the lines of
