English term or phrase:well pressed rushes
Protectiveness surged through Alex so strongly, it almost brought him to his knees. That small group of souls was what he'd been looking for the whole of his life. To think he might have turned his back on them—to think he had tried to turn his back on them and go home.No, this was home, with its unraveled wall hangings and wacky entertainment and its well-pressed rushes under his feet.

...y con las presiones/prisas de siempre agobiándole...(muy libre, pero a mi me gusta!)
