She drank straight from the bottle as she moved around the room, gathering and piling clothing into a small suitcase.

Green smoke swirled from the man's ears and mouth, forming a fog around Gabe's hand before crystallizing into a small emerald.
Dressed in a sundress and sandals, Deidre left the bungalow on the beach and walked down the long driveway to the small road.

Terrified Gabriel was coming to kill her, she sought a place to hide, finally settling on a small, dark space under a counter.
Gabriel rubbed his jaw and strode out of the Oracle's small room.

Wynn was brilliant at small talk, distracting her and making her laugh with his dry, morbid humor.

Seeing Gabriel made her insides flutter and the world seem too small to be anywhere but his arms.
It grabbed her, and a small part of her recognized Gabriel.
She strained to move, regretting she couldn't have one small moment of peace.

There was a small scream, then the crack of bone and ripping of flesh.
She saw his large frame against the night sky outside the small cave, human one moment, then decidedly not the next.

Rhyn shoved past Kiki into a small courtyard.
