Real Madrid are the new champions! I run off to celebrate and slide on my knees.
Animosity International: Staff on strike in Amnesty offices across the globe | The Independent
The little stones on the ground scrape against my skin, and as I get up I feel blood trickling down my leg. I rattle the rusty corrugated fence so it sounds like thousands of fans jumping and cheering in the stands.

He chews his nails and spits them over the wall. The smell of fried vegetables and spices wafts across the pitch.
