Une délicate odeur anisée s'élevait du bol de grès simple déposé sans autre apprêt sur la table où le maître prenait ses repas lorsqu'il s'adonnait, comme ce jour-là, à quelques sulfureuses expériences. Le petit lutin domestique déposa à côté les quelques gougères appétissantes et dorées qu'il venait juste de sortir du four. Il aurait bien croqué à pleines dents dedans et goûté un fond de velouté, s'il n'avait tant craint la colère du sorcier. D'ailleurs, ne devait-il pas avant tout veiller à ce que le plat reste

THEY defined me.
They called me fat.
They called me ugly
They gave me the tools I needed
A scale of numbers,
A ratio of ugly to beautiful,
A tape measure of acceptance
That never quite fits around my waist;
A rock-bottom self-esteem
derived from the look
On their upturned faces:
Eyes looking through me,
Eyes always watching me,
Eyes turning away in disgust.
You're saying I did this to myself?
YOU did this!
LOOK AT WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME!
You're the pig,
The fat blob vegetating on the couch;
Watching me starve, starve, starve

I'd heard enough. The she-ogre serving lunch had just gone too far. My thoughts turned red, and next thing I knew, I was lying in a jail cell, chained to a ugly male human.
"What the hell happened to you?" he asked.
Looking down at my black-and-white striped Ghoulies shirt, I noticed large patches of bloodied, ripped fabric stuck to my shoulders. Duly noted as well was the fact that they weren't mine.
"Guess I blacked out again." I felt like my vocal chords were scraped with a file, and my mouth tasted like iron.

The car jolted to a stop, my foot hard pressed to the brakes and a fast apology on my lips to Courtney, a teammate carpooling with me. I don’t live in Prescott, Arizona and up until coming to Yavapai College at the beginning of August I had never even entered the state. “Oh-no, it’s okay,” Courtney reassured me, leaning back in her chair, blue eyes darting behind brown rimmed spectacles. I laughed nervously – I generally always felt nervous when driving to a new place in a foreign region. We had been driving that Monday for a good fifteen minutes and would most likely be late to the 4:30 PM schedule

Rachel was thoughtful, the kind of person who would bring soup to their dear sick friends.
These kinds of people were rare, and often overshadowed by those who would solve problems by parties.
Or those who could manipulate them without even knowing it.
But there are those who embrace Rachel's honesty and compassion.
There are also those who claim to, but their own honesty is flawed.
