Albuquerque, New Mexico

     Ayanna Barker moved in time with the fairground’s loud music as she stood in line at the beer tent. For a brief moment, the skies were silent as the air show regrouped for the final demonstration which would be followed by a huge fireworks display. So for the time being, it was solely the music that pulsed through her.

My Thoughts: 

It sounds as if Ayanna is having a good time:)

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda at Freda's Voice. To play along:

  • Grab the book closest to you, any book will do.
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Choose the fifth (5th) sentence or a few more (just don't spoil it too much).
  • Post it on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, post it in the comments below.
  • Link your post to Freda's Voice.

The droning of the dial tone reached him. She’d hung up. Just like that. Just a short goodbye and then…nothing. Her tone…so distant.

So what are you Friday Book Beginnings and 56?
