These depressing sentences are what I recently read from “Feds to test taps for cancer contaminants” by the Canadian Press at the time of my own tap water scare which remains ongoing, at least until I receive the water test results:
“Health Canada is now seeking a contractor to determine if the contaminants, known as disinfection byproducts, flow from the country's taps. Water-treatment plants have long used disinfectants such as chlorine and ozone to eliminate bacteria from drinking water. But in the 1970s, scientists discovered the disinfectants react with organic materials in untreated water, such as decaying vegetation, to form the byproducts.”
And for those readers who seem unable to withstand suspense of my usual two sentences, today here are several from my WIP ‘Keeper 2’:
“A flash of reflected light in the corner of Alicia’s left eye made her look. The blade of a long sword moved quickly slicing through air. The creature reared up on hind legs, roared, part of pain, part of anger as the sword slashed through its neck; and in the return arc entered mid-chest. The roar became a gurgle, and the huge furry mass toppled back.”
