Category: Teaser Tuesday

Grab a current read, open to a random page (either by flipping through it, using a randomizer, or let my boyfriend pick), and pick 2 (or more) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, write them down, pick a cover, and done.

Credit for this one (though I changed Tuesday to Thursday): Should Be Reading blog

Edit: This used to be on Thursday, but I am changing it to Tuesday as it works better that way.

As she watched herself stepping into the school, a sense of evil and impending doom washed over her.
“Stop!” she thought, hoping that maybe she could command this “show” to end, as if she were pressing the stop button on a remote. But the “show” continued. She did not wake up, and images of her life did not stop playing out in front of her eyes.

Mrs. Frawley, who was observing this whole conversation, leaned over. “Can I give you kids one word of advice?” she asked?
We both nodded.
“Cupcakes,” said Mrs. Frawley, very seriously.
When you said one word, you meant one word, Sarah Anne said.
Mrs. Frawley chuckled. “Well, here’s a second word for you: chocolate cupcakes.”
“What about them?” I asked.
“Nothing cuts through tension like baked goods,” she said, extremely seriously. “If things get tense and it’s like the party’s going south, break out the chocolate cupcakes. Works every time.”

Leaning against a bus-stop post across the street, illuminated by a circle of yellow light from a street lamp behind him, she saw a young man staring at her.
“Dex?”
He didn’t move.
She froze.
She recognised the red windbreaker. He had worn it a million times.
“Dex?”

‘Looks like the place where all the bodies are buried,’ Chets whispers.
‘Perfect for Fangs, then,’ Trent says.
‘Vampires suck blood from the living, not the dead, you idiot,’ I say, as I accidentally whack his shoulder with my backpack.

This baby hears
more Japanese here-
Obaachan’s fussing about Jiichan
leaving tea rings on the table
bruising tomatoes on shop errands,
forgetting something on her list

the tv blaring
recipes,
drama,
and news all day long.

“Right,” Duncan said, slowing as we approached a small wooden building pushed up against the back of the school. “But everything from that shed’s been moved into this shed.”
We shielded our eyes as Noah blasted the doors open with a fiery explosion.
Duncan sighed. “The doors weren’t locked, buddy.”
“Oh, sorry,” Noah said, embarrassed. “It’s just, we’re in a hurry, and uh…”

When I got home I found out that Baarbara had been caught stealing red-hoofed. Even our goats are kleptomaniacs!
Mum was shouting at her in Chinese. I asked what had happened and Mum said that Baarbara had chewed through the last of the fence post, escaped and sneaked through the kitchen into the shop. Mum heard a ‘ping’, and when she went to investigate, Baarbara was standing there munching away on twenty pounds’ worth of fivers.

I flipped through the book and stopped when I thought it was right which turned out to be page 33.

I stood up, sighing, and stepped inside, while she went on to Room 1.
I got a surprise when I saw the room, for I had expected it to be the image of ours – all pale blue chintz and potted plants  and fringed lamps. But this room was rather more masculine, red papered walls covered with sporting scenes and a large iron-framed bed, its sheets tumbled back restlessly.
