Dwight could not believe he was there. How had he ended up in this room staring up at the ceiling? Was this where he was expected to recover? The last thing he remembered was hanging with Joe and talking about taking the pills. Where was Joe now? The whole night is a total blank after that point. Dwight took a deep breath, trying to calm his nerves so he could figure out where he was and how he got there. Someone would know. As he lay there silent, he could not hear another human anywhere near him. Where was he? (100 words)
Tiny Tale #2
Once upon a time there was a little elf named Slinky. Slinky was different than the other elves and because of this he was always alone. He didn’t mind being alone. He would stare up at the ceiling and imagine seeing faces that he could talk to. Sometimes they would talk back. At least the faces in the ceiling didn’t mind that Slinky was different, they were there to help him recover from his feelings of loss when he was told to go away. Slinky held onto the belief that someday he would be fully accepted for who he was. (100 words)

Veva held onto the railing of the dock as she walked toward the boat. She was shaking in every part of her body, knowing that if she fell in, she would never recover. That’s what happened in the water. There were things under the docks and swimming under the boats, things that liked to eat humans as if they were nightcrawlers on the end of a hook. She didn’t want to go to the boat, floating above the water like a ceiling between two worlds. But Veva knew without stepping onto that boat she would be left here forever alone. (100 words)
When we show our faith and trust in God he will allow us to do impossible things. It is not about standing still and taking what life gives you it is more about going out and getting what you want. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, black or white, you can do impossible things.
Based on the thickness of the slime that was coating the water in the small pool just below the stream, I could tell that we would be having quite a few frog-lings born this year. They would hatch under the thick, green layer and emerge as little frogs.
Today the cable company had to come out and install a new cable from the street to the house. They were here all day and what they left is no longer the trench they dug, but a depression down the front of my lawn where once there was green grass (and some weeds, but who cares right?) I called and asked them to come back out and fix this area that is now much lower than the surrounding yard and I know it will need more dirt and it will need to be compacted down, lest it washes away in the next rain.
Bill was unsure how he felt to be working for a pittance, ever since leaving his job at Mercury and going to this small company. He wasn’t sure if it was worth it though. He did have less stress, but he did take a huge cut in wages. He honestly wasn’t sure he would be able to live on such a small amount of money.
When Darcy walked into the room, she immediately recognized the company she would be spending her time with. They were a vibrant bunch, much more so than her coworkers in the shipping department. The people Darcy worked with acted like decent human beings, not industrialized robots.
