Comfort (prequel to Turning His Life Around); by Grace R. Duncan:
The words slid around Ian’s brain trying to find a foothold, trying to find a grasp somewhere, but they wouldn’t take. Ian stared at the hole in front of him, its ragged edges trying to describe what should be going on in his own chest, but he couldn’t seem to make the picture stick any more than the two words.
It continued to hunt for a place, but like the picture in front of his eyes, it couldn’t seem to mesh with anything in his knowledge. He tried to make the words and the picture work together, but they refused.
Work to Do II; by Tray Ellis:
Even with Chaz’s help, it took six hours to clear all the walkways on Knute’s list.
The snow brought in by the snowstorm was heavy, wet, clumping snow. Every shovel full dragged with weight, but the solid clumps of snow were easier to shuck off to the sides.
Chaz followed Knute to each walkway and after the first few, they fell into a pattern. Chaz whistled while he worked, a perfectly in-tune, trilling whistle with high notes and low notes. Knute didn’t recognize the tune, but he enjoyed the music.
