“I don’t know what I’m doing here anymore. It’s so cold that my toes are beginning to go numb in my boots. They should have been here hours ago to pick me up.”

The Island, Dewi Hargreaves

“I’ve been staring at my account for half an hour, but it doesn’t change. No matter how much I will it, no money magically appears…”
A New Color of Sunrise, rue sparks

“His fingers flex around the glass, testing their grip before he raises it to take a sip. Bubbling cherryade fizzes against his lips, the rosy colour of an early summer sunrise, and disappears into the wet darkness of his mouth.”
