Excerpt:

“I came to see you, Juli.  I had to.  I—I was watching you from the road and—”

“What do you mean?  You can see me from out there?!”

“Yeah, well, that road right there goes by the side of your neighborhood, and I take it every night when I go to work, and tonight—I had to see you, Juli.”

Excerpt:

Excerpt:

Melanie shook her head.   She was doing it again.  After getting over the shock of being fired without notice and without much explanation almost three weeks earlier, Melanie had promised herself she wouldn’t dwell on it.  She wouldn’t dwell on that or the fact that now she had to move back in with her parents until she found a new job or that she’d have to leave this city she’d grown to love so much.

Excerpt:

Ellen almost dropped the box.  She almost started to explain to Bert that she had nothing to do with any of this, that she had just wanted to mail a package to her sister.  But all of a sudden Ellen realized that Bert had begun to look at her intently.  No, he wasn’t just looking at her.  Bert was outright staring at her, trying to compel her to open the white cardboard package.
