My hands clutched the metal student desk in sophomore Biology class at Alaska University. Sweat dropped from my forehead in the air conditioned room. Chills rushed up my spine and I shivered in a brief moment only noticed by me. My long nails scratched the surface of the classroom desk. My class schedule appeared on the square shaped electronic device on my desk, beaming in and out of focus as my vision blurred:
Humanities II
Calculus II
Share an excerpt of your favorite author’s work (10-100 words):
From ‘Little Wolf Ranch’ by Belle Magnolia
([Jan 24 – Tues]
Ch 1 — Owl Prophet
Fierce and feral, half his face painted black, the other half white, with a whirlwind in yellow on his cheek, the eighteen-year-old Kiowa warrior charged his stallion across the frozen ground. Kuy Syan Joshua (kwee: wolf shawn: little) rode with twenty-four others in the raiding party, his rifle sending leaded death to the few freight wagons trying to outrun their attackers. His sixteen-year-old half-brother Blue rode beside him, his gun raised, his lethal intent clear.)
