Germany, 1940. Eva didn't expect to find herself in the middle of a resistance movement, but when Sofia figuratively and literally pushes her into action, she is thrown into a life of thievery and brawls, of blackmail and justice. Yet the war still waits, beating away beneath the surface.

~5 min.

Chapter two is quite a bit larger than chapter one, so it will be uploaded in scenes. In this scene, the power dynamics of the classroom shift.
