The sexual tension between two people when one of them says “make me”
i am freezing someone please cuddle me or set me on fire either is fine
Two days ago, I woke up like normal, not really expecting my life to change forever. Little did I know that in less than three hours, a man with a gun would step onto my college campus.
Around 1240 on Tuesday, I left my room to go to 711-like c-store to get food for lunch. I came back to my room to find my roommate in a panic because she got an email from UNH saying that a man with a rifle was spotted by our south campus. (which isn’t that far from my dorm, less than a five minute walk.) 4 of my roommates were in class. Luckily for us, the man was unable to park his car on campus and had to park down the hill by the shoprite, where a woman spotted him holding the rifle. She called the police and the man was taken into custody RIGHT OUTSIDE of one of our academic buildings, where three of my roommates had class.
Now, almost two whole days later, the real story is beginning to be revealed. The man was a 22 year old first year student at my school. He was Asian, with parents who did not speak English. Right before the scare, he was in class taking an exam. According to students in the class, he stood up abruptly and left. He came back to class and a few minutes later, the lockdown was announced. He told a girl I know that “some asians these days are crazy.” Did i mention at that point that he had a gun on his chest and in his backpack? When he left class he went to his car to get TWO LOADED handguns and the rifle, which he hid on campus. Also in his car, he had 230 rounds of ammunition. I’m assuming that when he heard about the lockdown, he became too afraid to do anything and went outside to be apprehended by police. After his arrest, the UNH police, West Haven police, a SWAT team, FBI officers and US Marshalls began a search of every room on campus. Scariest thing I’ve ever been involved in.
It was discovered after his arrest that in his room at home, he had 2700 (i think) rounds of ammunition and newspaper clippings about mass shootings such as columbine, virginia tech and the movie theater shooting.
he obviously had intentions of shooting up my school. he reportedly also hid guns on other parts of campus.
all of this has just gotten me thinking about how much more i need to start valuing my life. it could have been taken from me in a horrible way on tuesday afternoon. i could have lost my three roommates who were right next door to the shooter. i don’t want to think about what else could have happened that day.
moral of the story is appreciate your life because you have no idea when it could be taken away from you. i got so lucky that day but who knows if i’ll ever be that lucky again.
