Monalesia Earle A Train and a Farmhouse
It was time to leave Seattle. Unwashed dishes were piling up and the cat had adopted herself out to a neighbor. The innocuous black box on my bedside table beeped with nauseating regularity, warning me that its clogged innards held too many unanswered telephone messages, while yellowing newspapers marked the weeks gone by since my natural curiosity turned their pages.
Mike Jasper Winter Hunt
Brad followed him down a trail marked by Williamís fading tracks from earlier that week, stepping softly and slowly to avoid scaring the deer. He felt the unspoken change in Williamís attitude and demeanor, a tension in his brotherís shoulders that marked the start of the hunt. Bradís pulse quickened and his eyes scanned the entire forest with a glance.
