'When Roger crept up behind Sarah, fresh and warm from her shower, and placed his cold hands over her uncovered breasts, she gave out a great yell of shock and indignation.'

'As the time came for the news to be passed on, John brought Mandy close, embraced her, and with a gentle whisper, explained that he wouldn't be spending the night with her but with Jacob.'

'In the falling darkness of dusk, the dark figure that emerged from the trees and lurched toward her, made Martha yell with fear.'

'Mark teased Maria's auburn locks away from her small ears and placed his mouth close so he could whisper words of love and tenderness to her without alerting her husband to his feelings.'

1846 - Iowa became the 29th state of the US.
1908 - An Earthquake struck Messina in Italy and killed nearly 80,000.
1981 - The infamous Rendelsham Forest UFO incident, in Suffolk near the US Airforce base, caused much speculation in the press. Just another cause for conflict between those who believe and those who don't. If the military had been more open from the beginning, the whole field of UFOs could probably have been less fraught with conspiracy theory.
