Stephanie frowned. “Robert? Oh, I see,” she said. “Oh, yes. He was here, he bit me and left the room through that archway,” she continued, offering the woman a smile as if to say no harm done and then went on. “I think we can chalk that up to his injury. He’s in pain. When they hurt a member like that, and-and if it’s not kept still it would probably be sore, which could upset him, and-and make him strike out. I’ve seen this before, working part-time at the hospital. He’s had all his shots so there should be no problem.” Stephanie stopped there not wanting to babble anymore.

 The woman’s now shocked and red face puzzled Stephanie. On second look, Stephanie thought the woman was angry.

The One Eyed Wink-Character Quotes

Tapestry drawing for The Reading Spot signed_bakThe One Eyed Wink-Character Quotes

Still shaken, I call Richie. He has to hear this from me. Though he is an adult, Richie is getting a chance few have when a parent is declared missing in a war: his father back.

Richie is shocked. “He’s been living there all this time? It must have been hell. What else did this guy say? he asked, eager to know more. And, he doesn’t even know about me.

Dangers of The Wilderness, New York, 1755: Character Quotes

9780981861470ebookcovwe wade into the frigid water, heedless of my fear, to a fallen log that is at the river’s edge as if waiting for us. We heard a startling cry from the woods, we push off together, an unspoken bond, then floating fast away. I was looking back seeing no one in pursuit when the man said words I barely understood. “We need to get farther down river.” ~ from Dangers of The Wilderness, New York, 1759780981861470ebook html_img_55 by J.D.

The Boy In The Leaves: Character Quotes

The Boy  In The Leaves B&W FINISHEDFinal 3-25-13  JDHOLIDAYIn front of old man Sushel’s, the house next door, Tony shouted, “OH, SHIT! Max, look. Look! Is he dead?”
“What? Who?” Max moved to where Tony was as the wind swirled again, and the leaves fluttered at Tony’s feet. And there he was. A small boy laid there, motionless. Unlike the leaves around him he lay undisturbed by the wind gust.
Max stepped away. It was just a little kid. He looked asleep, his dark skin was a shade of blue and purple, almost translucent. Thin parchment spanning a fragile frame.
The boy wore black jeans and an orange T-shirt with a ‘Save The Oceans’ logo across his chest. A crusted gash was on his forehead. Any time now he’d move, open his eyes and jump up, laughing.
“He’s dead,” Tony said again, this time contemptuously, his eyes wells of tears.
Max’s chest felt crushed like the time he’d fallen on his back from the school yard jungle gym and he couldn’t pull air in. He managed to say, “Maybe he’s not.” ~ from The Boy In The Leaves, a short story by JD Holiday
