Mine: Chapter Seventeen by Cia Nordwell
  “You don’t remember?” I asked cautiously. “No, no, don’t sit up.” I gently push on his shoulders.
 “What am I supposed to remember?” Kraig asked as he looked around. “Wait, how did I get back here? I fell asleep at my parents’ house.” Kraig frowned and worked his jaw. He reached up and pressed against the bruise. “Ow. What’s going on?”
 
“I brought you back here. You were unconscious because I knocked you out.” Just saying the words was hard enough. The look on Kraig’s face as he stared at me in shock was even worse. “I’m sorry, but I

Through the snow by Taylin Clavelli

Every time there’s a snowfall, the UK comes to a halt. Thankfully, the weathermen had given enough of a warning, and sure enough, the main roads were clear. I just had to get to one.

Getting off the drive was an experience. Despite the grit, my partner, Brian, and I added to our path, the car did less than stellar impression of an ice skater as we crawled the half mile to the main road. Once there, Brian made his way to drop me at the train station before continuing onto Worcester, which was in the opposite direction to me.

Moving Forward #16 (4.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

He half expected to hear Dustin whine at him to slow down, but the other man caught up with him easily enough and fell into step beside him. Had he really thought he would be discouraged just because Marshall hadn’t waited for him? Didn’t matter. He shrugged the thought off and kept walking.

“Burnham seems like a nice place,” Dustin commented after a few moments of silence between them.

“It is. We like it.” Marshall shoved his hands into his pockets, focusing on the terrain over which they walked rather than his companion.

“I can see why. I bet everyone knows everyone else.”

Let Me In, Chapter 30, By Carol Pedroso

Thomas tossed the canister into the old dinner and as soon as smoke was billowing out the cracked windows he started yelling. “Go. Go. Go.”

They crashed through the doors and Cade saw six men and Hayley. At his signal he felt Jaydon send a mental command out passing over him and the rest of the assault team. “Everyone down, now.”

The men, who had been coughing when they crashed in, fell to the floor instantly. Hayley was at the opposite end of the dinner from where Cade entered. She swayed when the command went out but stayed standing.

Fortitude: Part Forty-nine by Cia Nordwell 

Wildman set a brutal pace. For such a small, wiry guy, he could really move. I couldn’t go on much longer, and we were already deep in the jungle. “Can we take a break?” I gasped. I stumbled into a tree and stopped, my shoulder throbbing. Without its support, I probably would’ve dropped to my knees.

 “We’re exhausted.” Teddy hadn’t said anything, but his feet had started dragging, leaving furrows in the thick loam. I hitched him closer to my side; my muscles burned, and my arm felt like it was going to fall off.

“Not there.”

I rested my

Fortitude: Part Forty-five by Cia Nordwell 

Wildman darted between me and the guard.

 “Stop!” My yell was strangled. I had to lower the gun; I’d almost pulled the trigger when he moved. My heart raced and sweat dripped down my back.

“Get me out of this thing,” Teddy said. He was straining at the bars of the cage.

 Wildman had the guard on the floor, savagely beating him. He wasn’t moving, except with the blows that rained down with a strength that seemed to defy Wildman’s size and had everything to do with his fury.

“Just wait.” I holstered my weapon and rushed over. I didn’t

Evans Woodworking: Chapter 13 by Jim Dunaway

“So Ethan, why don’t we begin with you telling me a little about yourself.”

“There’s really not a whole lot to tell. I’m 26 and I have my own business doing antique furniture restoration. I have two brothers and a sister. Do I tell her I’m gay? That might not be a good idea. She might have me committed.

“Do you have anyone special in your life?”

“Not now. It didn’t work out.”

“I’m sorry to hear that. What happened, if you don’t mind me asking.”

“He intentionally infected me with HIV.
