First Sentence Friday! CHAPTER TWENTY FIVE

This week is one of the challenges in doing First Sentence Friday.  When I came to Chapter Twenty Five and saw this week’s sentence, it looked (IMO) like it just sort of flopped itself out there.  I thought about maybe cheating a little, and sharing what follows, as in yes, giving you the second sentence, because this one’s so brief.  Then I read the second sentence. . . and I thought, weeeellll, now that’s a SPOILER.

We don’t want that.

There are four words only, yet the meaning behind them contains so much.  Of course, you don’t know that – you just have to trust me on this.  Sigh.

Okay, I’ve rattled on enough, and I’m not giving you anything helpful.

Therefore.  The sentence.

Chapter Twenty Five

    Hmmm. What happened in that missing time? Was someone just marking time? Planning? Waiting anxiously for something in the future? Sure, it’s 4 words, but what do they REALLY mean? Or is this merely a ploy from our dear author to shift the torment from her characters to her readers? Well played, madam. Well played.

      Ah, wouldn’t you like to know? A lot can happen in 48 hours. A. Lot. I love tortured readers. 🙂

    A pensive pause, perchance a pregnant pause or did my Cher theory go splat?

      It was a splat heard ’round the world, Craig. 🙂
