I had to give the other guy credit. That was a fine right hook. Every bit as good as my mom used to give me. Of course, the best right hooks were the ones I landed on the other guy rather than the ones the other guy landed on me.

It's unlikely that her cherished advice was meant to apply to bar fights, but then, she wasn't a big fan of bars or fights in general. I spit out the blood in my mouth.

The poor unfortunate reprobate, who was even now feeling the wrath of my fist, was serving as an armorer for the Stallions. That's why I took this fight so personally... not that he was an armorer, but that he was a Stallion.

Her vedder had known about Isaac's intention to marry her and accepted without informing Faith, a fact from which she was still reeling.
And to announce the marriage in church as if I had any idea.
"We will be married after final harvest," Isaac told her excitedly and not for the first time, Faith realized he was speaking around her and not to her. How many times had she wanted to end the almost farcical notion that she was ready to marry him? But as a good Amish girl, she held her tongue and watched the events unfold as if she was not party to anything going on around her.
Is it that I do not want to marry Isaac or anyone at all? Faith wondered, again pressing the glass to her rosebud mouth.

Are you looking to lose weight, break a weight loss plateau or become healthier? Countless scientific research trials have confirmed the beneficial results of fasting.
I personally have used intermittent fasting (IM) to burn off the last stubborn 12 pounds of fat I could not lose through exercise or diet. I did not have the will power to do 2-3 day fasts so daily intermittent fasting worked great for me, in fact, it worked so well that I can't help but to do it almost everyday, and there is NO hunger!
Countless scientific research trials have confirmed the results of fasting. If you want to learn how intermittent fasting (fasting for 16 hours a day then eating during an 8-hour window) has the ability to make you burn fat fast, and become healthier then this is the book for you. It is a basic introduction to the science behind IM including some meal plans.
In this book you will discover:

True Tales of a Traveller is a series of short stories and novellas consisting of several dozen traveller's tales covering 35 years. Although presented in a short story format for reading convenience, these stories are not fiction. Apart from some of the characters' names which have been changed to protect their identities, everything in these stories is true.
These stories do not all fit neatly into the 'travel story' genre, although some will indeed meet most readers' expectations in this regard. Others are simply adventures - or misadventures - that happen to have taken place in various different countries. They will appeal to anyone with an interest in travel, contemporary history, geography, culture, or international relations, or anyone who just likes good short reads. Most of the stories are crafted to provide information on the locations featured in them, and thus also have a useful educational function!
