    She didn’t want to yield: her heart was in a meat locker so cold and secure that Hunter Hayes couldn’t win his way in; (seeing him try, however, would be the thrill of a lifetime).

    The locker was heavy — but not as heavy as the guilt lying in wait at the bottom of her stomach, filtering down into her thighs, tweaking the lymph nodes at the side of her breasts.

  3. The inside of my high school locker smelled of rotten banana peels, wilted notebook paper and fear; I wish I didn’t know that.

  4. Rolando had already given Brandi the combination to his locker, which at Easton Middle School was something akin to presenting a diamond engagement ring.

  5. Michael Rigg

    Regardless how many autopsies he had performed or how hardened he had become after twenty-five years as Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Gray always cried, often uncontrollably, as the metal door of the cold-storage locker closed after receiving the remains of a battered child, unloved in life and unclaimed in death.

  6. “Lock ‘er!”, barked the ringleader, so the locker quickly locked the locker, oblivious to the pathetic cries from the unlucky lockee within.
