    1. I was on a field trip here a while back. They didn’t have any air conditioning as it was in the middle of December. When we approached the area where there were uniforms from wars on display, that’s when suddenly the entire area became unnaturally cold. My friends shivered and said let’s get out of here. And we ventured off to this empty display. I stood in front of it with my back to it. My friends stood in front of me, sideways. Suddenly I felt my hair being gently tugged. I turned towards my friend and asked her if she pulled my hair. She said no. So I moved a bit away from the display with no one in sight and once again my hair was pulled gently. That’s when I said no fucking way I just had my hair pulled. My friends looked at me wide eyed and immediately we sped off back to our class.
