|Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part ElevenThen he felt a draft. There was a bigger room up ahead. He was close – he could feel the darkness lurking beyond.|
|Cloud Flute: Part EightA single tuneless note escaped the flute, blowing through the air, a gentle breeze carrying it towards Vacerus. It was as if time had slowed down...|
|Visions III: Revealed - Part Eight"Oh, you're up," the Zafara said, going over to Nil. "How do you feel?"
"Like a mad Wocky zapped me in the chest," replied Nil, sitting up on her elbows. "What's happened since I fell unconscious?"
|A New Line of Work: Part Seven"C'mon, Mori. Norton's right behind us, and I'd rather not get shot at any more today," she coaxed desperately, not willing to leave the injured Draik behind.|
|The Co-Worker and the Missing Sister: Part SevenRose knocked the bottle away, but it was too late. It too smashed onto the hard floor, into millions of pieces, glittering like jewels or stars. Oliver closed his eyes and gasped.|

Patricia nodded. "Yep. I'll go get the duster!"
