Category: Friday’s Page 69

This one will be dedicated to a book’s page 69. I will post one or more sentences from the page that seem interesting/fun.

I started with this one in 2015 (May), and here is the backstory on how I got the idea: You all probably know that publishers often put something on the back to attract people. Something like turn to “insert page number”. Well, according to a writer’s 2006 book you should pick page 69 to determine if you want to read the book (Find Your Perfect Novel).

She laughs. “Worried that the three bears might come home and see that you’ve climbed in their bed, Goldilocks?”
I flush, embarrassed that she thinks I’m young and afraid. With all the confidence I can muster, I settle into the armchair. Something sharp pokes my spine but I ignore it and lean back. If she’s comfortable here, so am I.

‘Space is really beautiful,’ she said. ‘And vast! We’ve probably only discovered a teeny tiny amount of what is actually out there! Did you know for example that somewhere in the Universe, there may be a planet made of diamonds?’
‘There is!’ whispered Nova into my ear. ‘I’ve seen it!’

I started to run. I didn’t know where I was running to, I just knew what I was running from, which was this school in general and Mrs Ramshaw in particular because she was properly freaking me out.
I was running past the big hall windows when I realised the big hall windows meant that whoever might be in there would be able to see me but hopefully nobody would be in there but I sneaked a quick look and everybody was in there so whoops.
The whole school, by the looks. All dressed in yellow.

Puri looks to the basement windows at ground level. In the farthest corner of the basement is a private file library. The file room is locked, accessible only to the nuns and doctors. She can’t help but wonder – why is it always locked?

The monsters ball’s tooth-packed mouth closed as snug and tight as a very expensive bank vault.
‘How am I feeling?’ it growled. ‘I’ll tell you how I’m feeling! Thoroughly fed-up and tired!’ It yawned, revealing the pink tunnel down which the referee had disappeared.

Amy’s dad stands, shakes my hand and says, ‘That was nice of him.’
He squeezes a bit too tight, nods and lets go. Then he opens the front door and says, ‘Goodnight then.’
I look down at Amy, who glances up at me and says, ‘See ya.’
I wait a few more seconds, outstaying my welcome, but who cares?
I could run up the stairs and find out if there are locks on their doors before they could catch me. But then what? Would they let me leave if I’m right? And what would they do if I’m wrong?

Mr Wormwood led them into a small grove. the leaves of trees were all different colours: plum pinks, goldenrod yellows, dragonfly blues, and marmalade oranges. From the branches dangled apples, seemingly wrought from glittering gold.
“These apples!” Yesterday gasped. “I’ve never seen anything like them.”

My spirits plummet all over again. The words I want to say to Casley are on the tip of my tongue – that I wish things could go back to the way they were last year, when it was just her and me and the science club. Everything was so much simpler then, back before Emily and the ghost bus and the little boy with dark eyes. But I can’t tell her all of that. Not now. Maybe not ever.

The ghostly finger of blame pointed squarely at the vampires – the very same vampires that had created the ghosts through their unusual eating habits. The ghosts were none-too-happy about becoming lunch. Being drained of all your blood and then coming back as a vengeful spirit would easily ruin your entire week.
On the other hand, the vampires argued that the whole situations was highly dramatic. The ghosts should get on with hit and stop all the wailing and chain-rattling. After all, it was the vampire way to drink the blood of the Living, much as a predator animal must catch its prey to survive.
