What do you like to do? “I like to stay busy,” he said. The sweat soaks his clothes during trash pickup. Every kind of person walks the streets, what a collection of souls! There are those here who’ve lost their soul. It’s been crushed by the soul crusher.
J followed in the footsteps of his father and warned of following other’s ambitions. S keeps a straight face when you joke with him. One man has an artistic son.

Find an empty unit to hide in, because here comes the soul crusher.
