Kris jumped up and ran to the still empty locker and flung the door open. Bending down he tried lifting the bottom shelf from the locker with the tips of his fingers, with no success.

Justin walked into the dorm and was immediately perplexed by the sight of a near naked Kris rolling around on the floor.
"Dude, erm, you good?" Justin asked with a slight chuckle in his voice.

"I got a letter "
Justin looked confused for a second before asking,
"O...Kay. I take it you don't get many letters then? " he asked jokingly.
