"I like when a girl eats, like, you know, when she isn't afraid of a bacon cheese burger, but she also takes care of herself and doesn't let herself get fat," her date said. Naomi just smiled, knowing that the creature that was coiled in her stomach would take care of everything.
The children heaped the things that they pilfered from garages and laundry rooms and kitchen cupboards into a pile: cloth
UnchainedThe boy and his father heaved the fishing net out of the water and onto the deck of their boat, where it landed with a loud slap. It was full of the usual slim, silver-colored fish, but there was something much bigger in there, too. “I think it’s a shark, Pa!” the boy said excitedly. What a lucky catch! Rich people were willing to pay a lot for shark meat. But as they pulled the net away from the struggling creature, it became clear that it was no sea creature that they had ever encountered before.Unchained by LindsayIrene

Anxiety twisted in her stomach when she remembered that she had gym class today. At least it was only the gymnastics unit. Olivia didn't know what she would do when it was time for the swimming unit. My gym shirt is big enough to hide the tee shirt I'm wearing. The teacher won't know. I just won't do very much so I won't sweat. I don't want to start to smell.

"Don't be silly, Draco. No one is staring at you. Come along."
Pansy was just flat-out lying to him. As he followed her into the clerical department of the Ministry, absolutely everyone stared at Draco. Several middle-age ladies exchanged significant looks. As he passed them, he could hear them whisper: "A pity, isn't it? Such a promising young man. Did 'outstanding' in most of his OWLs. Something terrible happened to him in the war, though. A shame, such a handsome boy unmarriageable."
Pansy led him through the desks and to a small office. A sixtyish woman looked up from her work. "Ah, here he is, our new errand boy. How are you today, Draco?" she said in the sort of voice one used for dogs and small childr
