I used Random.org and it selected page 157.
I nod, soaked to the bone and shivering now. I’ve had enough for one day. I just want to get out of these clothes and sink into a hot, bubbly bath. I don’t even wait for Ryder to leave with the dogs – I start stripping down to my underwear right then, and there and race down the hall to my parents’ room.
I’m still in the big Jacuzzi tub when the power flickers -once, twice- and then goes out, leaving me in total darkness, chin deep in lukewarm water. I don’t know why, but it all hits me then -Nan’s surgery tomorrow, shooting that mocassin, this stupid never-ending storm. I start to cry, deep, gulping sobs. I know it seems childish, but I want my daddy. What if things get worse? What if the house starts to flood? Or the roof blows off? As much as I hate to admit it, I’m scared. Really scared.

Once upon a time in the days of old, eleven fairies gathered at a court before a child to hold. Only eleven, for the twelfth was dead and the thirteenth was missing. An invitation for every living fairy -excerpt for the thirteenth- had previously been sealed, sent, and delivered: a formal request to come forth and bless the sweet newborn princess.

I flipped through the book and stopped at a random page, this turned out to be page 201.

It wasn’t until he started walking again that Scarlet released a captured breath. They’d been walking for hours without sign of another train, a cross-section of tracks, or civilization. On one hand, it was beautiful here – the fresh air, the wildflowers, the critters that came to the edge of the brush to watch Scarlet and Wolf before scurrying back into the ferns.
But on the other hand, her feet and back were sore, her stomach was growling, and now Wolf was telling her that the less loveable creatures of the forest were prowling nearby.
