Wakefield is a family friendly neighborhood, with brilliant public schools in the area. Not only are the streets safe, both during the day and night, but the commute time is impeccable.
heyo.. im currently underground in the sewers, looking for my pet rat. i need help please. i lost my pet rat two days ago. last thing we did together was kiss on the full moon. after that we went on a date to pizza hut and the workers started screaming. my rat ran away and jumped in the sewer hole. i nose dived inside but all i saw was an aligator swimming away. you dont think my pet rat made a new best friend? oh my gosh, he mightve ditched me for the aligator. im gonna elimate the aligator and get my friend back if its the last thing i do.
