Gåturen ute i det kalde været var fantastisk fordi sola var på vei opp og lyste så godt den klarte. Dagens smakebit er fra Misery av Stephen King. Den handler om en forfatter som havner i en bilulykke. Han blir funnet av sin største fan og hun tar hånd om han. Høres veldig hyggelig ut, men det er tross alt Stephen King så alt er ikke akkurat fryd og gammen…
He knew just how long because of the pen, the Flair FineLiner he had been carrying in his pocket at the time of the crash. He had been able to reach down and snag it. Every time the clock chimed he made a mark on his arm – four vertical marks and then a diagonal slash to seal the quintet. When she came back there were then groups of fie and one extra. The little groups, neat at first, grew increasingly jagged as his hands began to tremble. He didn’t believe he had missed a single hour. He had dozed, but never really slept. The chiming of the clock woke him each time the hour came around.
After awhile he began to feel hunger and thirst – even through the pain. It became something like a horse race. At first King of Pain was far in the lead an I Got the Hungries was some twelve furlongs back. Pretty Thirsty was nearly lost in the dust. Then, around sun-up on the day after she had left, I Got the Hungries actually gave King of Pain a brief run for his money.
