The Friday 56

The Friday 56 (#18)

Rules:The Friday 56
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.

 The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice where I’ll post a sentence of two from page 56 of either the book I’m currently reading or a random book from my shelf. If you would also like to participate, click the link to the host’s blog page.


Crimes of the Heart – by Beth Henley


“LENNY. (After a long pause.) Babe; I feel bad. I feel real bad.

BABE. Why, Lenny?

LENNY. Because yesterday I-I wished it.

BABE. You wished what?

LENNY. I wished that Old Granddaddy would be put out of his pain. I wished on one of my birthday candles. I did. And now he’s in this coma, and they say he’s feeling no pain.

BABE. Well, when did you have a cake yesterday? I don’t remember you having any cake.

LENNY. Well, I didn’t…have a cake. But I just blew out the candles anyway.

BABE. Oh. Well, those birthday wishes don’t count unless you have a cake.

LENNY. They don’t?

BABE. No. A lot of times they don’t even count when you do have a cake. It just depends.

LENNY. Depends on what?

BABE. On how deep your wish is, I suppose.

LENNY. Still, I just wish I hadn’t of wished it.”

(pg. 55-56)
