The external scars tell only part of the story.

  1. What was beyond the bend in the stream was unknown. Both were curious, but only one was brave enough to want to explore. That was the problem. There was always one that let fear rule her life.
  2. It was a question of which of the two she preferred. On the one hand, the choice seemed simple. The more expensive one with a brand name would be the choice of most. It was the easy choice. The safe choice. But she wasn’t sure she actually preferred it.
  3. A long black shadow slid across the pavement near their feet and the five Venusians, very much startled, looked overhead. They were barely in time to see the huge gray form of the carnivore before it vanished behind a sign atop a nearby building which bore the mystifying information “Pepsi-Cola.”
  4. Don’t forget that gifts often come with costs that go beyond their purchase price. When you purchase a child the latest smartphone, you’re also committing to a monthly phone bill. When you purchase the latest gaming system, you’re likely not going to be satisfied with the games that come with it for long and want to purchase new titles to play. When you buy gifts it’s important to remember that some come with additional costs down the road that can be much more expensive than the initial gift itself.

Her face was captivating by reason of a certain frankness of expression and a contradictory subtle play of features. Her manner was engaging.
  6. There was something special about this little creature. Donna couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was, but she knew with all her heart that it was true. It wasn’t a matter of if she was going to try and save it, but a matter of how she was going to save it. She went back to the car to get a blanket and when she returned the creature was gone.
  7. He couldn’t move. His head throbbed and spun. He couldn’t decide if it was the flu or the drinking last night. It was probably a combination of both.
