Her expression was one of puzzlement for a moment, but it passed quickly. Marc wondered what was on her mind but did not have time to wonder long. “Are we going in that?” she asked, pointing at the ATV.
“If you have a counter proposal, I am open to suggestions.” He was amused by their conversation but maintained a serious facial expression.
“We could take my car, if the idea does not offend you.”
'She does not want to offend me. I have not been treated as thus before, ' he thought. “I am not offended,” he told her. “But again, I do not wish to be an inconvenience.”
For just a moment, she hesitated but her smile quickly returned and Marc visibly relaxed. Being able to spend the entire day in her company, thrilled him to the very core. He had a difficult time maintaining a calm demeanor. “Allow me a few minutes to adjust my attire, and I will be ready to venture forth.”
“Not a problem. I 'll just warm my coffee. Where is the microwave?”
“Pardon?” Her question startled him and he thought, 'What kind of wave did she say? '
“Your microwave oven? I thought all bachelors had one. Isn 't that like an unwritten law somewhere?” She giggled at the idea then stopped suddenly and bit her bottom lip. “Oh boy... I never even thought to ask. Are you married?”
“Till recently, the mere concept of joining my life to someone in such a permanent manner had not crossed my mind. So the answer to your inquiry is, no, not married.” Marc glanced in her direction just long enough to see her nod her approval. It only seemed polite, though, that he should reciprocate, even though he was already aware of her marital status from her journals. “And you? Do you have a spouse of which I shoul...

“Sure did. You ready to check out?”
In the car, with new shades on, Marc studied the city map. 'Shades, ' he mused to himself. 'They used to call them shades. I remember it from the term paper I did on this millennium 's slang. Perhaps I will be able to blend in after all. '
“You 're doing it again,” Lily broke in. “Are you going to share this time?”
“Again I was mulling. This is quite a concept--wearing my new shades.” He quickly stole a look at her to see her reaction to the term. But she just responded with, “Yeah, I think they 're pretty cool, too.”
His response was to beam a brilliant smile at her.
“How does one navigate this?” he asked suddenly, totally confused. He turned the map around in every direction and shrugged helplessly.
“Here,” she told him, giggling. “I 'll show you but it’s a moot point since we have my GPS.”

- What is to love you. Is it just a four letter word. An idea or concept. Well I can 't give you an answer to the questions but I can tell you what love meant and now means to me. Love once meant to me the feeling of pain, being brought to cloud nine to just get thrown down to the ground. I didn’t know what love was, it was just taught to me through abuse both verbal and physical. I was trapped, and I was lost to what it meant. Love to me was just a meaningless word. It didn’t mean anything to me, I thought it was just a justified way to hurt someone.... [tags: Debut albums, English-language films]

Sin and Corruption of Puritan Society Illustrated in Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, Miller's The Crucible, and Bradstreet's To My Dear and Loving Hus
- Puritans may have tried to give themselves the appearance of a perfect society, but it was really just as corrupt and full of sinners as any society today. In the Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Crucible by Arthur Miller and “To My Dear and Loving Husband” by Anne Bradstreet, there is evidence for this. In Puritan literature, although they try to hide it, sin is very common, in that Puritans do the opposite of what they preach, but still harshly punish those who sin. Affairs are a common sin with the Puritans that cannot be kept secret, because of the Puritan stress on faithfulness and love in marriages and the negative view of divorce....

- “LOVE”, a simple word with four letters, sounds very simple but has a vast and deep meaning. From the very ancient time till today there have always been a topic called “Love” in every work of literature. Even in the ancient Biblical times, we see “Love” carried a deeper meaning. Several chapters and verses from the Holy Book are the evidence that “Love” existed during that period too, be it God’s love to all His people, or a man’s love to his wife, or vice-versa. The book of Genesis not only talks about the history and origin of the world, but also talks about several things on “Love”.... [tags: Anne Bradstreet, my Dear and Loving Husband, marri]

- Dear Sir, Re: Fox hunting debate. Over the years, we have listened to the hunters' spurious claims about job losses, civil liberties, numbers of hounds that will have to be shot - arguments that distract from the real issue, which is that hunting with dogs is a barbaric practice, and the majority of people in Britain want to see it banned. Fun is a good thing, agreed, and great if you are having it... so long as it is NOT at the expense of others. You seem to think that Foxes (animals in general) are just feeling less objects that are there for people to abuse in however way they desire, and that they should not be given rights, supposedly only because they are...
