Baptism of fire -1-"This old girl? She's perfectly harmless. Sure, we've had our fair share of rough patches," Dr. Waters bit her lip, reflecting on how she knew at least one of her co-workers was dead-terrified of the A.I, refusing to so much as go into its chamber, before brightening considerably. "But we've got her under control now! We've definitely got her under control," Dr.Waters reached out and patted its smooth white hull gently, making it jerk up and swivel around to face her, narrowing the metal shutters around its single golden eye in what was unmistakably a glare, before it dropped back down and continued to dangle almost lifelessly.
Dr. Waters gave a nervous chuckle, smoothing her hair. This behavior was unusual for GLaDOS, and the scientist wasn't sure she liked it. Sure, it could be said that it was a vast improvement from the usual slew of insults and threats GLaDOS spat at her, but at least those didn't make it seem almost as if the A.I had completely given up the will to live.
Kiss the venom -Chapter 5-It was only early afternoon and like many other teenagers, the tiny little blond girl whom just happened to be curled up alone in the back of a school bus was desperately craving a nap.
She was in the third to last seat, curled up in what she hoped was an inconspicuous heap, her head resting on her knees, her pale slender arms holding those knees to her chest.
One by one her schoolmates heaved onto the bus, sitting in scattered noisy clumps on the hard plastic seats, screaming obscenities at each other, while passing around junk food and various illegal substances.

The girl immediately flopped down into Lily's seat with an audible 'oomph', turning to face her with a clearly annoyed glare that made Lily groan, staring back at her friend with narrowed eyes.
"How'd you get here before me? Mr. F let us out a couple minutes late." Charlotte clapp
Kiss The Venom -Chapter 4-Marcus was a tall man, and Liliana was rather small for her age.
He took long strides as the odd pair ran down the deserted sidewalk, and Liliana had to hop three times every few minutes or so to compensate for the distance between them.
"What happened? Tell me!" She pleaded, stumbling over a small crack in the pavement.
For a moment, it seemed as though Michael were ignoring her on purpose, his clean-shaven jaw clenched tight.
They passed the supermarket, with its nearly empty parking lot, the drugstore with no parking lot to speak of, and Big Sally's Bowling Alley, with its normally packed parking lot eerily devoid of any life at all.
The bowling alley was once a reasonably attractive building, until new management took over, namely the titular 'Big Sally' (An appropriate name, Sally was a rather large woman with a tattoo on her arm and a deep voice from her acquired skill of being able to smoke through a single pack of cigarettes in a two day time frame).
