Kindness in the Works

Polarjet slammed the door and raced to the town square. He knew that for him to hand his blueprint on time for parts production, he needed to run faster than a My Mechanical Buddy T-3000 in overdrive.

The Morning Paper

"Horeseay, listen to this, the grooming shop is having a hair stylist in their beauty salon next week for free consultations. If you decide to have it cut and styled like they recommend, it is all on sale. I have always wanted to have my hair styled by a specialist. Maybe I will get a whole new look." I went on, "what do you think?"

"The Morning Paper" by applefaerie99
J eronie the blue Yurble was reading the large ad in the morning paper. Jeronie called over to her roommate, "Horeseay, listen to this, the grooming shop is having a hair stylist in their beauty salon next week for free consultations. If you decide to have it cut and styled like they recommend, it is all on sale. I have always wanted to have my hair styled by a specialist. Maybe I will get a whole new look." I went on, "what do you think?" Horeseay looked at me over the sports pages, "If that's what you want, go ahead. I hope it's nothing too far out." When I stopped by for an appointment, I found out they were filled up and had to settle for a place on the waiting list. I remembered back to another incident years ago when I received a free "hairdo" and it made me laugh thinking about it. At the time we had been in our new home in Neopia Central only a few years. My younger sister, Cami and her roommate had recently moved to Roo Island where she taught math. We really enjoyed being able to get together often. "Come over for the weekend," Cami had written in a note to me, "I found a great place where we can get our hair done on Saturday morning and it doesn't cost anything!" At that time having our hair done at a beauty salon was a special treat, reserved only for special events. So we were ready early Saturday morning when we walked to town for our free beauty services.

Nonlinear Companions: Dawn: Part Three
I never liked to talk about how things went in exams, inevitably I would be wrong. However, on this occasion I felt I had done quite well. All the questions had been in the areas I had understood best, and all in all, I was quite pleased with what I had written.

Erica and I went from a relaxed walk to a sprint down the stairs. I just knew that Dean Green wouldn't walk but fly down the stairwell. That made me nervous. Even though I could run really fast, I was still at a disadvantage to flying Neopets.
