I’m really trying to be on the ball this weekend.  I’m heading to my parents’ house this weekend, and for some odd reason, I never seem to touch the computer when I do so.  I will be checking my computer Sunday evening, so I probably won’t respond to any comments until then.  Hope you enjoy.

My legs shook from the hours of running and walking, my feet choosing that moment to throb sharply.  I will not cry.  I will not cry, I chanted to myself as hopelessness valiantly tried overtaking me and heat overcame my face.  I would not give up.  I would not fail David that way.  Right now, I was all he had.  How would he ever get home if I…  I didn’t let myself finish the thought.

Are you enjoying Seize?
