Welcome to The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.
Here are the words that Matilde, the Queen of Earth, spoke that night. And she began, pouring each of her guests a cup of tea.
"Your grandfather simply loved the harvest festivals near Bearu... and the kingdom was at peace. We had no cause for concern, when traveling alone to the annual festivals, without royal guards."
