For This Week:
It was Mrs. Dashwood who acted first, even as the sailor's were still loading their blunderbusses and the coxswain was pulling the tarpaulin off the ship's cannon. She grasped a spare oar from it's rigging, snapped it in twain upon her knee with a swift motion, and plunged the sharp, broken point into the churning sea-piercing the gleaming, deep-set eye of the beast.
From: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monster by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters
