The ceremony just began Paul Winston looked over at his girlfriend Crystal. Obtaining his Master’s Degree was quite a feat especially at age 25. Graduating from New York University he was as happy as he could be. He was excited that he could finally begin to join the workforce as a teacher and get his life together. Paul peeked over at Crystal holding their son Zach. Crystal was as beautiful as Aphrodite; Paul felt that he was a very lucky man. His job as a professor for New York University was going well; Crystal was a nurse currently working at New York Downtown Hospital. He thought he would be set until he could retire and move to Kentucky with Crystal and enjoy the rest of his days.
Paul’s class had just began it was a slow day. The students were tired and did not care about the class. Most of them their parents had paid their tuition and paid off the professors, they knew daddy would bail them out if necessary.

A golden taxi flew by and he whistled, the taxi came to a screeching halt and he hopped in. Hoping he would make it before the students so he could prepare for his classes.
