"AHH!" Mike yelled, landing not so gracefully, AKA on his face. "Ow."
"You made it children!" Milla said, pulling Mike and Cee in for a hug, "I am so proud of you, darlings! Here are your merit badges."

"A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I've lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."
