"It really is cold isn't it," she sniffed, "Alright, you have a deal. Don't worry, if you hear me mumbling to myself it's because I'm just counting out steps and how far things are for me. God only knows where it would lead us both as we headed into the building.
Coffee sounds awesome right now," She moved around to face me and blushed, "Uh, can I take your arm? I haven't gone nuts or anything.""Well, I did call this place the asylum, didn't I."She laughed and nudged herself against me, "Coffee."So that was it. We sat in a quiet corner of the canteen away from the groups of people who had arrived to work early in order to beat the rush hour made worse because of the weather.

I got up and sat on the edge of the bed for a moment. A blind girl called Heather Mc Callister had made everything different. I had already parked the Lambo and was making my way up from the underground car park towards the main entrance of the building when I saw a cab pull up to the curb and the driver gets out to open the rear door on the left-hand side.
I closed my eyes and hung my head as my body began to wake from its slumbers as I stretched and ran both hands through my thick dark hair. I stared out into the far distance as the world began to paint herself with cloud strokes of deep copper and burnt umber. Suddenly a white stick appeared and I watched as the girl eased herself out onto the sidewalk as the cabbie fussed around her.
The advent of the Internet has changed the culture profoundly, and has had a strong influence on how people relate to themselves as well as to each other.

It was such a strange feeling to know that I could be this close to her and look at her without feeling brazen or awkward.
