  160. This newborn baby is red in the face from crying and screaming at the top of his lungs. Tears stream
  161. down his chubby little cheeks and drip from his face, only be to absorbed by the small blanket which

  192.  
  193. A single gleaming red eye opens in midair, then suddenly becomes the heart of a swirling fog of
