The Deadly Double Dare; by Tray Ellis:
Bruce regretted rising to the bait of the double-dog-dare taunt.
He should have said nothing. He should have walked away. He should have argued more. He should have argued more persuasively. He should have done something else–anything else–other than accept Rodney Coopersmith’s dare. Now Bruce was not home, safe, where he should be, eating apple pie that his mom would be baking because she didn’t know what else to do with all the extra apples brought home from apple picking. He was not warm and cozy, and he was not happy.
Jealousy, Part 23; by Grace R. Duncan:
Not a muscle twitched, not so much as a harsh breath broke the silence in the room. The quiet hum of the ancient, tiny digital alarm clock could even be heard by the two lying on the bed as they contemplated fate and choices. The headlights of a car skimmed across the off-white plaster ceiling and still the two on the bottom of the bunk beds didn’t move.
Ian didn’t think there was anything specific that prompted it. No sudden noise, no shifting of eyes or movement of limb. Nothing in particular started it that he could tell.
