Example text

They'd never known their mother to out­stay her packing before.  How would he feel when she went back to California?  Eventually it turned up. "Gussie, I love you," Clyde said.  She hadn't expected him to say that. " They both sat there in a state of wonder.  I dialed his number, and kept dialing for the next hour and a half, only to get a busy signal.  Clyde had caught a flight to Sacramento. " "I'll marry you," she said.  On the plane back to Spur, they chattered away about relatives, each other, their adventure to come.

No one filled Daisy in on the plan.  She paced the floor and whined.  She tunneled out before dawn. " The extended Galan clan gathered at Rachel's home and fanned out like soldiers.  They knew it would kill him if he lost that dog. Darkness fell, and still no sign of Daisy.  For hours she did this, starting before dawn.  She even made it into the main hallway and was sniffing at the doors.  Then she just curled and slept. " By six­thirty that night, another one of Abe's daughters—Chris Hackler—made the long walk down Memorial's hall to tell Dad the bad news.

None of us could ever know. Dan looked through the window in the door and saw some of his students crying while this kid was reloading his rifle with shells from a box on the teacher's desk.  He got everybody out of the school, then held his breath and turned the doorknob.  Then he began to realize, Whoops, I'm still here.  I hope I don't see the flash.  And then, when the kid put the barrel under his chin and threatened to commit suicide, another officer who'd crawled in seized the rifle.  Our fear is that when someone whom everybody knows in everyday life is suddenly set up as a hero—especially in our culture, where heroes are touted as larger than life—then there's something about human nature that wants to take that person down a peg.
