Matrimonial Persuasion

In her defense, she was trying to save both the cities of Sakhmet and Qasala here, not to mention the happiness of all parties involved; the flaming Baggusses was she going to let another disastrous marriage come to pass, not when she had the power to stop it…

The Valentine’s Day Which Was Plagued by a Villain

Walda, however, had decided to stay behind—she had an idea. The other students' candy was sitting on their desks, just waiting to be eaten. Filled with avarice, she started to wolf down everyone else's chocolate, blissfully hopping from desk to desk.

Love is Patient

She was done talking, then, but I stayed silent. Did I love her then? I think I did. But love was patient, and so was I. If she didn’t say anything, then neither would I. And I didn’t. And she didn’t.

Then the teacher turned off the lights to get everyone's attention. "Class," she began, "it's time for recess." The children rushed out the door excitedly, abandoning the sugary stockpiles which they had been guarding fiercely. The teacher followed the stampede. Walda, however, had decided to stay behind—she had an idea. The other students' candy was sitting on their desks, just waiting to be eaten. Filled with avarice, she started to wolf down everyone else's chocolate, blissfully hopping from desk to desk. She had eliminated all of the chocolate in about ten minutes. Therefore, she had to settle for the other types of candy, which vanished in another ten minutes. When the other students returned from recess, they stared at Walda with aghast expressions on their faces. Consumed by a sugar rush, she was sprinting around the room, dancing atop the vast heaps of candy wrappers that littered the floor. The other students started to grumble. One of them, a Baby Grarrl, was particularly overwhelmed by rage. "NO!" he shouted. " You wouldn't DARE!" You did NOT eat everyone else's candy! You selfish little beast!” Nevertheless, Walda ignored him, since she had traveled off to her own little world.

Welcome to White River: Part Two
Buried somewhere under there was a notepad on which he had written "MAYORAL CANDIDATES" in large block letters. Try as he might, he could only think of one name that really fit what was best for the town. Underneath the title he'd jotted down the name that had haunted him from the moment she'd come into town. Portia Provoskia.
