the friday 56


Rules: 

*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) 

*Post it. 


I'm reading  Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole Matthews.


From 54%:

An elderly lady arrived with a tray of tea and biscuits for them.  No mugs here, it was all served on fine bone china.  "That looks pretty," she said. "Nice job, boys."

"Take a breather for five minutes, lads," he told Rozzer and Smudge.

The lady stood for a moment to admire their handiwork.

"Does it look any different to the rest of the banister?" Jim asked.

She studied it closely and then shook her head.  "No.  It looks just the same to me.  Very pretty."

"You've made my day, love," he said.  "Thanks."

That gave him the impetus to believe in himself and press on.  This was going better than he could possibly have hoped.  Cassie would get such a surprise when she came home.
