(This is a much-shortened version of a story I started working on recently)
College started soon and Josh needed a place to stay.
A newspaper ad led him to a three-bedroom apartment.
Ben showed him the room next to Claudia’s. (Claudia?) She wasn’t home.
At midnight she kicked in his door...
'She' was Ben in a dress, wielding a sharp knife.
(Josh never did make it to class)
