4,406 words (≈ 18 minutes)

The gruff Mr. Ellis teaches Woodshop in a forgotten end of the school with cannibalized machines to an apathetic student body.

As the factories close down and jobs leave forever, students at Devon schools are still taking Woodshop. Perhaps a remnant of the old industrial age, Woodshop also speaks to the soul of those who need something more. While Lenore dreams of something more, she and her fellow lost souls appreciate the haven for misfits that Mr. Ellis provides.
