  • A man fights a battle with his conscience on whether or not he should continue to help a disabled girl. Altruism vs. self.Time: PresentWord Count: 1828SAMPLE (574 words of 1828 words)(this story contains: immature drinking, death)“At least stand up.”Tia wails, flailing her arms madly.

    She is sprawled on the couch and looks up at me suddenly, her face rather demented.“Tia, I can’t help you when you’re down like that.”“Don’t care! Don’t care!”“You should care, it’s your life.”“Don’t care!”I am sitting on the arm of the couch. I study Tia’s uncomprehending face and then sigh.“Tia, if there’s anything I can do for you…”“There isn’t.”“But if there is, you know you only have to tell me.”“I won’t!

    I won’t!” Tia flails her arms wildly once more. Book Tic-Tac-Toe Her resistant, tortured voice is like nails on a chalkboard to my ears.“You have to understand. You need to stop, Tia. You need to stop thinking how you’re thinking! It’s ruining you.”“Stop!

    Stop!” I doubt Tia thinks at all. Her eyes roll madly and she begins to sob. For several moments I look at her before I turn and walk from the room.Almost at once, I hear, “Come back! Come back!” Tia is now shrieking in her cracked, rough voice, spit gurgling in her throat. “Help me!” This has occurred every time I have tried to leave the room so I am not surprised when it happens again.I am irritated at Tia’s dumbness, like a dumb ox, and her inability to care for herself, but I am a good man who does what he can to help others in need.

    Slowly, I make my way back to the room as TiaРІР‚в„ўs cries become increasingly louder the longer I am absent.Tia is an unstable and extremely insecure girl, as I like to call it.

    She doesn’t know where she belongs or even where she is half the time. That is why I am helping. But I am irritated. Tia is taking up too much of the time I usually use to do fun stuff with people who aren’t inhibited by mental something or other.Tia is still flopped on the couch, her sticky hair matted to her anguished face.“Come back!” she shrieks, ruining half the cells in my left ear.

    She has not yet noticed that I have returned. “Come back!”“I’m here now! Look!” I raise my voice, so our two voices together sound like a bloody murder.“Come back!”I shake her viciously. Her head lolls back and forth as froth comes from her mouth and she coughs. I jump back immediately to avoid getting contaminated.“I’m here, Tia. See me?” Tia’s eyes look over my face. Her breathing is still heavy and raspy but she has calmed down from her hysterics.

    “What’s the matter?”There is a moment’s pause.“I can’t take it.”“Can’t take what?”

  • Meet Lieutenant Flint: hard-edged and muscle-bound, radiating machismo—a bull of a soldier. In the opposite corner stands Captain Turner: with his pencil mustache and tailored shirts, heРІР‚в„ўs a Trick Soldier—smart, crisply-dressed, and always at attention. TheyРІР‚в„ўre fire and ice, oil and water .

    . Download Trick Soldier (Military & War Short Stories Collection) . Sean Penn and Michael J. Fox in Casualties of War.Ten years ago and a thousand miles away, they attended boot camp together. They didn’t get along then . . . and they don’t get along now. Reunited in the Haitian jungles, in the midst of a fierce rebel uprising, they confront the most dangerous enemy of all—each other.It’s time for heroes to rise and cowards to fall, and in the case of Lieutenant Flint and Captain Turner, bravery runs deep.

    When brute strength confronts military honor, the true measure of a man is not in his fists, but in his heart.A First Sergeant with the 20th United States Marine Corps Reserve, Hubbard knew exactly what it meant to be a Marine.

    As he wrote in 1935: “Most of the fiction written about [Marines] is of an intensely dramatic type, all do-or-die and Semper Fidelis.” But the reality, he said, was far different. “I’ve known the Corps from Quantico to Peiping, from the South Pacific to the West Indies, and I’ve never seen any flag-waving.

    The most refreshing part of the U.S.M.C. is that they get their orders . . . and do the job and that’s that.” It’s that kind of unique and pointed insight that he brings to stories like Trick Soldier.Also includes the military adventures He Walked to War, in which Marine Sergeant E.Z. Go appears to take it easy, but always gets the job done . . . even if it’s hard as nails or dangerous as hell—in the end E.Z.

    does it; and Machine Gun 21,000, the story of a soldier who loses a gun and faces a court martial, but finds a way to save the day.

  • I sat in stunned silence, staring back at the grey eyes that had become so familiar to me over the last year. I swallowed hard and struggled for my next breath. About Valynn(The Andley Sisters, Farmers Daughters #2) “Valynn, I will return in six months or so. It isnРІР‚в„ўt as if I am leaving forever,” I heard him say.Forever, he had said forever, but not in the context I had been expecting.

    I sat here, on my sister Georgiana’s front porch, the evening of my eighteenth birthday with the man I had assumed I would marry, my Isaac Stein. Isaac, with his playful grey eyes I had come to adore and dark hair. Isaac, my childhood friend. Isaac, the man who had courted me for the past year. He was leaving, and he asked me to wait for him. “Isaac, I do not think waiting will do any good,” I admitted softly.

    I had to be honest; I had felt for some months the same uneasiness he presented tonight. His telling me that he was leaving on a wild goose chase looking for gold was confirmation that my restlessness of the past few months was for a reason.

    I wiped a tear from my eye, but felt strongly that God was leading me through a new door. What would the future hold for me now….

  • This interdisciplinary study argues for the vital importance of visual culture as a force shaping the Victorian novels formal development and reading history.

    It shows how authors like Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, Wilkie Collins and Thomas Hardy borrowed language and conceptual formations from art world spaces – the art market, the museum, the large-scale exhibition, and art critical discourse – not only when they chose certain subjects or refined certain aspects of realism, but also when they tried to adapt various genres of the novel for a new and newly vociferous mass audience.

    Quandaries specific to new forms of public display affected authors sense of their relationship with their own public. Download The Victorian Novel and the Space of Art: Fictional Form on Display (Cambridge Studies in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture) Debates about how best to appreciate a new mass of visual information impacted authors sense of how people read, and consequently the development of particular novel forms like the multi-plot novel, the historical novel, the sensation novel, and fin-de-siГЁcle fiction.
