1. The problem with running for your life is that at some point you have to stop and it’s very very hard to get moving again.

2. Nicknames were the price you paid for being young, so said her Uncle Buck, but Abby didn’t mind. Even when they teased that Abby was short for Gabby, it suited her just fine– Abagail didn’t have the nice same roundness to it and besides, she hated drawing L’s.

5. Somewhere in the darkness death was waiting for them… Thankfully, death snored.
