That's when the thought hit me: I had to find out. I had to solve this mystery.
And so, I decided to call off my suicide plan.
At least for the time being.
The first place I decided to visit was the Forensics Department / I decided to visit the Forensics Department in February, as soon as the semester began...
Destiny, however, had another plan for me.
The gods would hear my plea and send the help that I'd been waiting for all along. The help that would revive the flame that almost died inside me.
My morning classes had just ended, and I was eating at the university's cafeteria / Two days had passed after the incident in the Forensics Department. My morning classes had just ended and I was eating at the university's cafeteria...
I worry that, if I don't specify the day/date, the reader will wonder, "OK, how, is this a day or a year after the previous chapter?" On the other hand, the 'dateless" version seems to flow better. So I'm confused about which one to use.
