The Prospector's Revenge"Woody, Woody wake up."The Prospector's Revenge by UPlover
The Prospector awoke Woody late during the night and walked out on a little stroll. Woody was glad that it a moonlit night so he was able to see everything around him.
"Where are we going?"
"Just a midnight stroll and to make sure we're on good terms."
"Yeah, of course." Woody wasn't listing that much as he looked all around the trail that they were on. He didn't remember going down this way.
"I felt so bad for what I did all those years back. It wasn't until I got an owner that it changed my way of thinking."
There was something about this trail Woody knew wasn't right. 'Don't go down the path that says 'pond', Bonnie.' He remembered her father saying. 'It's dangerous at this time of year.'
"But it didn't feel right to stay, I was never meant to have an owner. I went on the run and tried finding Al. It was my only way to go to Japan. And when Al saw me he threw me away."
Woody already heard this story, he didn't know why prospector was telling this story again.

Most that have come to play with me, don’t stay for very long.
Some stay longer than others, but they’re not as fun after awhile.
I don’t understand? Is it something I’ve done?
Jennifer was leaving the office after a long day at work. She was tired of dealing with cranky customers, insistent bosses, leery coworkers - especially the male ones- and to top things off, it was cold, cloudy and threatened rain for about 3 days. She knew it was mostly the weather getting her down. Jennifer could not wait to get home, remove these boots that, while they were her favorite brown leather heels, were really starting to make her feet ache. She longed for a hot bath and something warm in her stomach.
Her path to her car was blocked at 5:15 by her boss, who raised a hand to stop her. ‘I need you to finish your expense report before you go. I have to have them turned in for month’s end by the time I leave here today. Yours is t

The husband was not technically a suspect in his wife’s disappearance, but according to all the news reports, blogs, words on the street and water cooler talk, it seemed that he was all but sent to jail for the crime. She had vanished one sunny morning while she went to run in the forest preserves near their suburban home, something she had done for years. After 10 years of marriage, her husband claimed that she was tired of everything and ran off with another man. Why would she leave her kids and the rest of her family behind, in the dark? people wondered. He had no answer for them, and merely repeated that she had ran off. Numerous searches of the neighborhood, the forest preserve, where she worked, all proved fruitless.
All of the major news outlets covered the story, even garnering some national coverage and time in the spotlight in some national magazines and talk shows. Multiple on-camera intervie

They walked through the dark forest until they stopped.
Carl looked around and saw a pond of dirty water. Muntz was looking at it in a sad way.
"Why are we here?" Carl asked. "This is where my lover died. The first time we came to Paradise Falls we were chased by these animals. She was calling for me and I came just when she disappeared. She had to die this way and we were about to be married."
Carl patted Muntz' shoulder. "I'm so sorry Charles. Is this the day she died."
"Yes. She wanted to help me catch that bird and I was going to do it in her honor. Now that I have that bird I can honor her!"
"What are you talking about?"
Muntz turning to Carl looking him in the eyes. "Do you really think I've changed? I brought you here because I am going to take that bird whether you like it or not! Even if I have to kill you!" M
