"My wife...was the first Dome casualty."
20120607 Under the Dome
Under the Dome, 2009 by Stephen King
"Ants without a hill; Bees without a hive."
"Kids?" Andy asked. He wouldn't be surprised. When the devil got a preacher, he was apt to fall low, indeed. Low enough to put on a tophat and crawl under a rattlesnake... "My wife," Andy said. "She was the first Dome casualty."
"Can we have the last Pepsi if I share it out?" "Go ahead, but don't spill!"
HALLOWEEN COMES EARLY
"What kind of luck did you have?" "The bad kind. I talked to Officer Everett. Ex-Officer Everett. The others are in the breeze." "Does she know anything?" "No. She hasn't heard from the doc. And Wettington treated her like a mushroom, kept her in the dark and fed her shit."
Henry points to the Dinsmore dairy barn. "Plenty of shade there." "It's a quarter of a mile away!" Lennie says indignantly.
"Big Jim is a selectman, Feddy. I'm the Police Chief..."
Andy circled his tree as it came, always keeping the oak between him and the truck. It stopped...Andy had no intention of letting them blindside The Chef. He emerged from behind the tree and began walking straight up the middle of the driveway, CLAUDETTE held across his chest in the port arms position... He raise the Kalashnikov, but made himself wait. "Let them bunch together, if they are going to." ...Andy popped the clip as Chef Bushey had taught him...
...the beautiful Brown Swiss who once won him a 4-H blue ribbon...
If the Vegas bookies had given odds on those likely to survive the Visitors Day catastrophe, those on Sam Verdreaux would have been a thousand to one...
