One of the benefits to carting wood every day was that it kept him in shape. Mortimer was big for sixteen, his shoulders were broad and his arms muscular. He was elated by the intimidation and respect his size brought him and  that motivated him to get even bigger. He couldn't afford to go to the gym but push-ups and chin-ups and sit-ups were free. When he wasn't delivering wood, Mortimer was obsessively pumping himself up. ...

That DICK! He KNEW I had been working on my go-devil for the past fortnight to get it tuned up for the races! He KNEW I was going to win. So what does he do?

TELL EVERYONE BUT ME THAT HE HAD MOVED THE STARTING TIME OF THE RACE UP ONE HOUR.

Then when I finally did show up, he wouldn’t even accept my challenge for a one-on-one heat. He KNOWS he can’t win against me!

It wasn't that he didn't like his job; in fact, he'd be the first to admit he'd been damn lucky with his daily delivery route. A steady supply of dried kindling was always in demand to those bound in a treeless city. For three years he’d provided the kindling runs. He knew the exact date he started. It was his thirteenth birthday. His father had given him an old push wagon that day and said, "Son, you ain't really going to amount to...

Bookworm was about to open the front door of her home when Daniel flashed into view at her side. “One of the cabbits is on this street,” he said softly. “The one called Hally. You said you were looking for her?”

“I was--thank you.” She grabbed her revolver and quickly buckled it on, peering out the small window set in the door. When she saw the figure on the other side of the street, she quickly flung open the door and stepped...

Jan. 24 - 25 -- Justified Silence

Lisa was running an errand for Professor Vartanian when she saw figures moving below her in the frozen canal. She couldn’t see who they were, but their outlines told her they were Moreau-folk, and they were holding signs. Curious, she discreetly followed their progress from the road above, then hung back as they climbed up to street level and headed for the Port Babbage district.
