  1. fright

    Alarm, according to its derivation all'arme, "to arms," is an arousing to meet and repel danger, and may be quite consistent with true courage. Affright and fright express sudden fear which, for the time at least, overwhelms courage. The sentinel discovers with alarm the sudden approach of the enemy; the unarmed villagers view it with affright. Apprehension, disquietude, dread, misgiving, and solicitude are in anticipation of danger; consternation, dismay, and terror are overwhelming fear, generally in the actual presence of that which is terrible, though these words also may have an anticipative force. Timidity is a quality, habit, or condition, a readiness to be affected with fear. A person of great timidity is constantly liable to needless alarm and even terror. Compare FEAR.

    Before they could get the IV in he began to shake as someone who was cold would do, partially from fright and partially from the venom moving through his body. logan did not pick it up; it was on a branch and he brushed his arm against it.

  2. Cathrine Ertmann:

    But in all of this I also saw a peace and beauty, sometimes the scare is in the brief look at something. Like when you watch a horror movie, you only see a glimpse of the ghost, murderer or monster and your imagination works all the fright up for you. I think I felt I need to see everything to make it 'normal' and undramatic. And I think it works the same way with our relation to death in general.

  3. Stevie Nicks:
