This week I am trying something new. I'm going to scroll through my manuscript for a random time period and choose six sentences from whichever page I see in front of me when I've stopped scrolling. Yes, I'm being bold and daring this week. Here goes: we have landed on page 197, which puts us in Chapter 31.
Stephanie is under the weather, and unhappy about the fact that her boyfriend Joe has been avoiding her since she said she was falling in love with him. Her doorbell has continued to ring for several minutes and despite her determination to outwait whatever visitor she might have, Stephanie's decided to take a more pro-active approach. She's considered breathing on the offender, but she doubts whatever bug she has is lethal. So she chooses the next best option:
She grabbed a frying pan, intent on making the doorbell ringer suffer through physical force if viruses wouldn’t do the trick. She opened the door while raising the pan. It hit the carpet with a muffled thud as Stephanie stared at a dozen seemingly disembodied long stemmed red roses. Following the string with her eyes, she looked up to the ceiling where it was draped over a hook, then followed it back down, leaning out through the doorway to see Joe holding the other end of it. She looked back to the hook. “The super is gonna be pissed.”
That's it for me. It's been a long week and I'm looking forward to a day of visiting all of my favorite Sixers. :)
