Alex sighed and deleted the sentence that he had just written. He closed the document he had been working on, and opened up msn.
"Finally." he mumbled, his voice hoarse from no speech for over four hours. "Emails." His inbox had six unanswered emails in it; two off of the school, asking for help with teaching year tens who were known as the little terrors, one from his mum, (he winced) and three from his fanfiction website.
