The Friday 56…The Departed

It’s the closest…cuz I’m editing.

“He . . .” Tiffany looked away. She chewed on her lip, her eyes
closed. Then quietly she whispered, “Everybody loved Tristan.
He was a good guy, you know? People . . . they listened to him.
Even me.”

  5. I’m going to have to do this in two parts, because in the book I have in my purse, page 56 only has 4 sentences. The next chapter starts on page 57, so I’ll do the last paragraph (pretty much) from page 56, and the fifth sentence from page 57.

    Page 56: “Correction. Two people knew about the murder: me and the killer. I mean the killer and I. Grammatically correct or not, the knowledge scared the h-e-double-hockeysticks out of me!”

    Page 57: “Eventually, however, economics won out. I needed the moola.”
