Callista watched the algae on the top of the brook, and marveled at its green color. She was listening to Dungeons, a thrash metal band, on her transistor radio. She found the music allowed her to escape the awful reality of her life, living with two “squares” who seemed to believe that having fun was naturally sinful.
