Jem was still getting over his broken arm when we started talking about Tom Robinson and Mr. Ewell and what almost happened to us that night in the dark under the big oak. Before all that happened, Maycomb county had always seemed hotter and more colorful. Jem said that was just my being younger that made me think that way and when I got to be his age I’d understand better. I think he was just fooling though. He just didn’t want me to know that he was just as confused about it as I was. But then, he did have more experience with that sort of thing, what with Mother and everything.

Dean was standing in the kitchen at Herd. He stared at the pan in the pancakes, which he wanted to make for breakfast. He had heard the cry of terror. He knew that they would be there right away, with him, that they would ask for an explanation. He did not have the slightest idea what to say. He stared at the pan. The grease splashed to the sides. He heard the doorways sound as if noiseless. Continue reading “Her Misery… His Tragedy” »
“Clementine!” Ava cried, but the girl was nowhere to be seen. Her heart pounded painfully in her chest as she ran through the garden to look for her. She tried to persuade herself that all was well that Clem could not have happened, but her subconscious was not there. For too long she had been on the road.
We only play hiding places, she said to herself for the thousandth time, this is just a game. There is no danger! Continue reading “To Death We Go” »

“Am I worth all of it?” Bucky’s words echoed into Steve’s head.
Yes, he was. There was no doubt. Every single second for Bucky’s salvation was and has been worth it. Even sacrificing his team to stop Zemo was bearable in his eyes, justified, unavoidable. They had finally given them back cover in order to prevent worse. Continue reading “Confidential Matter” »
Henry had described Carina’s support and addition to her entire search for the Dreizack. Will had been silent, and Elizabeth, too, seemed very eager to know what her son had done in his absence.
Silence filled the comfortable living room when Henry finished his story until Will broke the silence.
“I … I do not know how I can thank you both, Henry and Carina. I do not believe you can grasp how easily you have my life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. “Henry smiled. Continue reading “Pirates of the Caribbean 6 – Dead Menʻs Return” »
I am standing in front of one of the large windows in the living room. I see the sun rise slowly behind the trees and feel the first sunrays on my skin. I listen to the chirping of the first birds. I love how, at this time of the year, the trees and shrubs are shining in a green and the flowers in front of our house are blooming. Everything is so vibrant. Until now, it all suggests that this day, like the last one, would be a sunny, warm summer day. But today will not be an ordinary summer day for me. Today I will marry Alan.
