He started walking back to his bike. She watched him walk getting further away from her wreck of an RV. Her bright green eyes stared back at her as she looked at her pale reflection in her rear-view mirror. Now or never. She scrambled to undo her seat belt and tripped down the stairs out of her small motor home, stumbling over the big rocks in the creek bed, arms out for balance. She stopped and l...

How did people come up with mathematical formulas anyways? Are people born mathematically gifted, or do they have mathematics thrust upon them? Einstein dropped out of school in the eighth grade and voila! We now have E=mc2 (whatever that means). I think most of the star mathletes of our history were insane or on the pathway to insanity at least. Think of the Ladder analogy, the ladder represents...

I sat in the tree, leaning against the concave wall. It was cool up here, in soft blue and green hues. Well, there is one thing that happens to be a tad bit more complicated. "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single girl in possession of a good....well I don't really have a fortune....but anyways... must be in want of a husband."Not to quote Pride and Prejudice or anything....

I ran and ran. Trees, leaves, vines, branches, are all a blur. I just need to get to my spot, and I'm feeling very fresh and fuelled today. We had a good haul last night. I can still see the vision of the net, full of slippery silver beings, laughter resounding from the walls of the cliffs. The boys had a good day. You never know how it will turn out when they leave in the morning, so early, tha...

I close my eyes and let the power and the ear splitting sound of the horn shake my body; shaking along with it the thoughts from my mind that always make it too hard to be conscious. I used to be afraid of the mighty trains that ran along side our farm for as long as I can remember. "Don't you get to close", mom would say, "It's dangerous". Now it just seems too intriguing to ...

As I walked into the interview, I was nervous, but not defeated. I was wearing my most professional out fit, a navy blue dress suit, and I felt fairly confident. I composed myself when the boss of the small Law Firm opened the door and asked me in, as the previous applicant walked out, a young woman, high black stilettos clicking on the laminate floor. "Hello Miss Lewis, you may take a seat o...

I desperately needed to get out of this place. All the grief and despair was weighing on me like a heavy fog that was pushing me down, and down. I made my way hastily out of the full church, pushing through the thick crowds. All searched my face, I couldn't handle it. I jogged down the street of our busy city. This was summer. It was supposed to be the time of our lives. Nobody should have to wear...

Pulled from a sound sleep, I grudgingly get out of bed, because I know there is no chance of gaining back that thoughtless unconsciousness, that escape that comes with slumber. My spirit's already growing exponentially darker as I sit on the edge of my bed and gaze at the maps and posters that litter my walls. As I get up and look in the small mirror on my bedroom wall, I can't even put my long da...

Chapter Three After the run, which was pretty fantastic, it was Calla's turn to drive to school, and after we got there Nate and I walked up the walk to the school. Since Calla was used to being late, she continued on to drop off Jay and Nicole. As me and Nate neared the doors there was this girl, she waved at Nate, and he waved back. "Who's that Romeo?" I asked jokingly."Taryn.&quo...

After supper and math homework, I went to my room and logged on to MSN. Other than a few people at school that I didn't really want to talk to, there was no body on. I was about to sign off when I heard that annoying little beep. I read the little pop up box, much to my surprise, it was Max. I immediately clicked on the little icon to pull up a conversation.Joss says: Hey Max!Max say: hey little s...

I awoke to the sound of Soulja Boy Crank Dat.I turned off my clock radio and jumped out of my warm bed. I grabbed some shorts and a t-shirt, to put over my sports bra and spandex that I had slept in. I sleep in my running clothes to save time in the morning, plus they are probably the comfiest clothes I own. I'd live in spandex if it was socially acceptable. Well, unfortunately it's not.I jogged d...

Just As The Sun SinksI looked down at my baby boy, pink and soft, wrapped tightly in a white plush blanket, this miracle of joy who began in my life 8 months earlier, had now joined me in the world only a few short hours ago. Even though I was considerably exhausted, I could not take my eyes off of my son, I could not stop thanking God for this wonderful day.I was all alone at the moment, lying on...
