Tuesday Teaser is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"They are afraid of nothing," I grumbled, watching their approach through the window. "Together they would brave Satan and all his legions." ~Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
And now, for my Tuesday Teaser...inspired by i swim for oceans. If you are writer, take a line from your current WIP or published piece. This is a line from my novel set in 1939 Hollywood.
“For heaven’s sake, woman!” Katie jumped at the sharpness of her grandmother’s voice. She rarely spoke this way. “Out with it! Where is my husband?”
“Perhaps it is better if you see for yourself.” The nurse pointed out the window where Katie and Isabella found Oliver Sweetly running wild on the green lawn—a team of harried nurses and angry doctors chasing him to and fro. Katie’s eyes widened and Isabella gasped; her hand coming to her mouth. Oliver Sweetly was stark naked with every hair on his head standing on end like a mad man's.
“They’ve chased him all through the hospital,” the nurse explained. “He swears the orderlies are skeletons out to tear his flesh from his body to cover their own.”
Isabella turned away from the window, her eyes sad. “Ezekiel,” Katie heard her say. “He’s right on time. Didn’t I say he’d be bringing the dry bones to life about now?”
