Excerpt From Story 1

He had never let me down. Even when the going got tough, he had never dropped
me.

It is real to this day. I hear him grunt
under my weight. With my frail body wrapped around his beefy back -- my
feet dangling as he clutches my knees
and holds them firmly against his waist
-- I grab at his surprisingly small shoulders, locking my thin arms around
his neck. I dig my chin into the back
of his neck, trusting he will not fall.

Paul is three years younger than me,
yet at 10 he can haul me on his back
along the dusty cow paths and across
the rippling creek in our Back Forty.
