I have been tagged! I've heard about being tagged, but this is my first try at this game. I hope I can follow the rules, which are:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to Vijaya's blog once you've posted your three sentences.
The nearest book happens to be Oscar Wild: Complete Short Fiction. On page 123 we have the story "The Devoted Friend." (Hmmm...coincidence or cosmic forces at work?)
Here are the three sentences:
It was a very wild night, and the wind was blowing and roaring round the house so terribly that at first he thought it was merely the storm. But a second rap came, and then a third, louder than either of the others.
"It is some poor traveller," said little Hans to himself, and he ran to the door.
I hope these next five people will forgive my impertinence for passing the tag on to them.
