The Long Ride Down; by Tray Ellis:
The huffing and puffing was done.
Jayce and Mike had pedaled their way up High Street all the way to the top and then beyond. High Street turned into Meadow Lane and snaked up for several miles through farm land with a lot of cow pasture on both sides.
The first half of the trip took the longest because biking uphill was hard, thigh-burning work, but the reward would make the effort worth it.
“This is it. The top.” Mike unclipped his bike helmet and ran his hand through his sweaty hair. The short brown strands stuck up in little spikes. “It’s all downhill from here.”
Bad; by Tucker McCallahan:
A twenty-ounce Mountain Dew sat beside my feet. Three or four other guys in wife beaters and long shorts lounged around me on the stoop of 746, drinking forties, smoking cigarettes, and generally looking like lazy thugs. Old school Public Enemy blasted from a random phone. My head bobbed to the hardcore beat. Couple of the regulars showed up and I took care of them with the easy slide. I was in the middle of a text to Shane telling him to shuffle his ass my direction and take over for me when I looked up and saw him.
I deleted the text.
Jealousy, part 2; by Grace R. Duncan:
Hayden pushed open the door at the end of the hall and held it for Ian to go through. Ian glanced over at him then stepped through and his eye caught Kane’s. Kane was strangely quiet, but he gave a smile of encouragement and Ian started to feel a little better.
Only a little. He still mostly wanted to die of embarrassment. They approached an old blue soft-top Jeep and Hayden went around to the passenger side to unlock the door. Ian opened it and Kane slid into the back before Ian could try to hide back there. Kane gave him a look that told him he was being ridiculous and Ian sighed, climbing into the front seat.
