  1. It wasn’t enough that boys found her good looking. She wanted someone to find her overwhelmingly beautiful.

    to hold the attention

  17. lost in laconic
    quixotic
    pursuits
    the evidence of a lonely heart
    toiling away
    frosting at the very seams

    emotions to captivate

    emulate
    the past is both the future and the present
    and all of them seem hopeless.

  29. She stood at the window, looking down from the third floor to where the people stood in the square. They waved empty pint glasses, the breeze ruffling hair and signs. The sight captivated her: so many people, united for a common goal. The beer had been shut down, turned off, dumped, and would be no more. And they were here to say that was unacceptable.
