High cold West wind blows
Heavy rain from the North falls
I lie sick in bed
The voice of rain,
Echoed by wind, is a hushed song;
I listen, and I sleep.
With me, a tender form,
Cuddling close and sharing warmth;
Slumber, then, is deep.
The Bigger Road TripThere were three teenage girls who are the very best of friends. Their names are Naru, Daisy. and Alice. All three girls enjoyed doing things together and having a good time. One day, the trio were over at Alice's house watching tv.More Like This
Naru: "So. What should we do today?"
Daisy: "I don't know. I feel like we've done everything we could think of."
Alice: "We could play Damsels in Distress?"
Naru: "Nah. We've done that lots of times."
One thing the girls had in common was a game they made up called Damsels in Distress. How it works is the girls would drive their cars to town and then purposely have problems, such as a flat tire, broken engine, or even getting stuck in mud. Their goal was to hopefully have a cute teenage boy come and help them. So far, none of them have a date.
Daisy: "There must be something we can do together."
At that moment, a commercial came on the tv.

Last night, these best friends had a fun sleepover at Naru's house. The sleepover included looking at pictures of old memories, having makeovers, and even a super fun pillow fight.

They did the same thing too, which was yawn and stretch.More Like This

False. The gender of the protagonist in children's or young adult's literature does not matter. For example, in the 90's, Goosebumps was really popular.
