1. Dogs travel with you, cats travel in tangent arcs.

2. “Stop thinking with your heart!” The alien grabbed the gun from Marc, but the refugees had already scattered into cover. With a curse, it flung the gun back at him. “This nurturing thinking is counterproductive, you are ill-evolved for conflict.”

5. One day the tide came in and never left.
