  1. Johnny walked into his girlfriend’s bedroom and was immediately shocked. Amanda was making out with her twin brother Adam! Her shirt was half-off, her bra strap dangling, and Johnny could tell she was more than into it.

  2. It’s alarming how fast his fingers can move. My money was wadded up in the heel of my boot, I’m sure. At least that’s where I left it. But now the familiar clump of bills is held between those long, dammed fingers of his. He waves it in front of my face jokingly, his freckled nose scrunched up with laughter. “Thanks for that.” He steps out of the way as I lunge for my money. “I’ve been looking for someone to buy my lunch.”

  8. I do startle myself on occasion, with my anger. I never get angry, but oh, sometimes, you hurt the heart I don’t have, that heart outside myself which I can only speak to…

    the bell song, that sweet talking alarm, will burst your eardrums.

  10. Their savings were being depleted at an alarming rate. The job loss — unexpected, though not entirely — had thrown their expenses into a new kind of relief. The essentials — mortgage, cell phones, cable, water, electric, car payments, medical co-pays — off course had to take priority. The trick now was to decide how many curtailments to their normal spending they could comfortable absorb, and how much suffering they were in for.

  12. my mindset, sometimes. I feel like I’m always all over the place, you know? I can be falling apart, really really falling apart for a few minutes and the next the crisis has been averted and I’m looking at pictures of chinchillas in party hats and feeling like it’s not so bad after all and maybe things might actually work out.

  22. The opening of the pit. The stench that rose from it. Both things churned in his gut – nothing like this was supposed to happen, but just like in those crappy movies he was usually coerced into watching, it did. And his breath was caught in a mix of terror and slight curiosity. This was a marvel, after all. There was nothing else like it in existence. Supposedly. Sure, the damn thing spawned insanity. But it was almost cool.

  28. Eyes wide open, eyebrows raised. They all stared down at scene before them. It was not pretty, it was not polite. But it was real. Perhaps the most authentic thing anyone in that town had experience in awhile. After today, going back to the cordial facade they called life would be difficult.

  37. The world is alarming. It happens all the time. Just when you think that you know something, the world will turn around and change it. The world can decide if they will change it to make it something good. Most often they make it surprising, or unexpected. Most of the time they make it scary, and bad for you. But you can not be alarmed. You have to stick with it. You have to get through it..

  40. “It’s alarming,” you say, poking at the lost clocks and watches.

    I keep quiet, but chuckle as you continue to fiddle with the artifacts, a pocketwatch in your hands.

    “It is,” I murmur.

    The sudden caw of a mechanical bird makes us jump.
