    0
    0
  • A short walk up the road uncovered another mailbox.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Pushing through some sumac that she thought bordered the clearing where the building stood, she squinted up at the sun.

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Determination was her motivation to stand up to the bully.
