Sometimes the prize isn't worth the effort.

Oyster He walks along the sandy shore, Looking for the perfect place to stop. It takes him a while to find just the right place. He throws down a colourful blanket and Sets up his things, ready to write. As he begins to put clever things onto the paper, He notices something at the edge of his vision. His eyes turn to look at it. It is a shell. He sighs, vaguely annoyed by...Read On



Good things can turn bad...

There was something amiss! Her left hand was tingling! Oh no! She began to panic. Her mind was racing. * Her heart! It must be her heart. Damn, but it had been under a lot of stress lately.
