Teaser Tuesday (10)

ss_teasertuesday copy

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I suddenly realize how quiet it is.  The band has stopped playing, and the crowd has gone silent too.  The only sound is the wind shushing over the grass.  From where we are, fifty feet past the crest of the hill, the barn and the party are invisible.  I have a brief fantasy that we're the only two people out in the darkness—that we are the only two people awake and alive in the city, in the world.
