Teaser Tuesday
 is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of  A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!




The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

By Neil Gaiman




My Teasers


Teaser #1


"The black kitten, was it yours?" He asked. 

"It's called Fluffy," I said. 

"Yeah. Like I said. Accident coming here. Not to worry. Disposed of the corpse. Don't have to trouble yourself. Delt with the matter. Open the box."

"What?"

He pointed to the box. "Open it," he said. 



Teaser #2


I said, "There is a dead man in our car."

"That's why he came down here," she told me. "The end of the road. Nobody's going to find him and stop him around here. Three o'clock in the morning. And the  mud there is wet and easy to mold."

"Do you think he killed himself?"

"Yes. Do you like milk? Gran milking Bessie now."

I said. "You mean, real milk from a cow?" And than I felt foolish but she nodded reassuringly.
