His cape blew in the wind. As Vince hoped on his motorcycle and started down the ramp, he noticed something that he had not seen before. There was large oil slick at the end of the ramp. He attempted to stop the bike, but it was too late. He had already built up too much momentum...

Rex sat at the mouth of the alley and chewed the bone that he had found by the dumpster. It was a meaty bone that had belonged to a larger animal, perhaps a state-fair prize winning pig. Rex was attracted to the bone by its strong scent. Apparently, he was not the only one who could smell it. He heard the jangle of tags behind him and turned to see a larger dog.

Angela fussed with the bedspread until it was free of wrinkles. She dusted her dresser and straightened the knickknacks. She noticed that a picture frame on the nightstand was slightly crooked. She went back and straightened the picture frame. She examined her bedroom again and gave it a satisfied nod, and then she went to vacuum the living room. As she was running the vacuum, her three-year-old son Jason walked into Angela's bedroom. He was drinking a glass of grape juice and playing with his cars. Angela's bedspread fell as he raced his cars off the bed. He bumped into the nightstand and knocked over Angela's picture frame. Then, he kicked over the grape juice and it spilled all over Angela's white carpet. Jason didn't notice.
