Moving Forward #66 (16.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes
When they entered their bedroom, they found that Roy had laid out their best suits. Come to think of it, Roy was dressed in his, although he hadn’t noticed before, too caught up in trying to figure out what was going on.
Marshall and Lee looked at one another and then at Roy. “Um, I’ll just wait for you out here,” he said and quickly disappeared.
“What in tarnation do you think’s going on?” Marshall asked.
“I have an idea,” Lee said, “but I don’t wanna say, just in case I’m wrong.
Double Trouble: Chapter 97 by Jon Keys
Danny glanced at his sister, who seemed entranced by a bracelet he’d never seen before, and Levi looked more miserable than someone in an emergency room. Definitely something he wanted to stay away from. He was busy enough trying to find something to do, so they weren’t bored to death. He turned back to cooking their dinner. Once he had everything ready, he motion to the other three.
“You know, Dad’s meeting a friend of his in town. It’s our last night. We should blow our wad and hit the midway.”

The Waterlord Prequel: Part 5 by Ravon Silvius
The voice reverberated throughout Tom’s mind, breaking through his dreams. Groggily, he put his head up, trying to find its source.
Wake up, go out.
Tom rolled out of bed and stumbled to his door. Who was calling him? It couldn’t be Nathan, could it? He wouldn’t be up this late.
Buy One, Get Two and Three: Chapter 41 by Carol Pedroso
Silas didn’t like the idea he had forming. “How? How can you find him?” he demanded of Toby.
Toby had the grace to look guilty. “I—Um—may have—kinda—well….”
“Spit it out will you,” Silas snapped. “Time’s a wasting.”
“I had a doctor friend put tracking devices in your arms when you were in hospital.” He spoke so fast the words blurred. “Kevin is still out there somewhere. How was I to know if he would come after you both again?”
Silas was furious. “That’s your excuse? You do remember that little thing called the law
“It’s driving you nuts, isn’t it?” Kraig asked. He was sitting on the couch in my office while I paced from wall to wall. Park had been gone just one day, and I was already antsy for his progress reports. He’s send them to all the alphas, but I instructed him to let me know of any leads he found, not just the ones that panned out.
“Don’t pretend that you don’t feel the need to hunt down those bastards too.”
Kraig eyed his claws and ran his tongue over his sharp fangs. That horrible stench came from him again
