On the corner of 8th and main there’s a man who sulkily shows up every day, rain or shine, with his taco stand. It was as if the man was a denizen of 8th street. Each day there is also a dog that languidly shows up, a cordial little pug to be exact. Each day the dog stands in front of the stand, just until the vulgar man chases him away and screams to him “never come back”. However it seems as though the dog is oblivious to the man’s words. Each day the dog still comes back, even if he was scrutinized each and every day. One day, after being chased away the day before, the dog came back. Still with a gayety attitude. The taco man came out, and went through the normal routine of making sure the dog had went away, yelling as usual. However this

We lived on Lookout….
I’m parked in the Taco Bell parking lot. I’m about to make a greatly significant decision. My girlfriend is inside, and it’s just around the time for her lunch break. I took the key out of my ignition and walked in, preparing for the trouble I was about to get myself into.
I walked just outside of the car and admired it’s redesign for a moment. Just then, Carly, my girlfriend, peeks out of the door.

that if someone chokes on their steak, they should pay the man who saves your life. It means that if one of those friends slip and fall, they shouldn’t have to be paid to get rescued. No one can put a price on being alive. Being held accountable for one’s actions during a life or death situation can put a great deal of pain on to the victim because of something that could have been out of their control.

The Short Stories Quiet, But Aggressive Approach
Novels are superfluous while short stories strive for flawlessness, ensuring meticulously picked details and succinct plots. The short story utilizes the complex and vivid words the English language has to offer, painting pictures in the minds of the reader, while the novel overwhelms the reader with redundant and arbitrarily picked language.
