  • Marie shared from Under the Dome: A Novel by Stephen King
    The shock dissipated as suddenly and completely as it did when people first touched the surface of the Dome; as quickly as his lightheadedness and the accompanying vision of the dummy in the crooked tophat. He was just kneeling at the top of the ridge overlooking the town, and sweltering in his leaden accessories. Yet the image of those leatherheads remained. Leaning together and laughing in obscenely childish conspiracy. The others are down there watching me. Wave. Show them you’re all right.

  • Marie shared from Witch Stories by E. Lynn (Elizabeth Lynn) Linton
    “Jesus help, Jesus save!”—and came up to Lewis Hughes, in a state of wildness and dismay. As he stood behind her holding her by the arms, she lifted both herself and him off the ground, foaming at the mouth and struggling thus all over the chamber; and then her strength gave way, and she fell as if dead, her head hanging down and her limbs, which had been so stiff and frozen, now supple and limber.
