Day Six, Chapters Five & Six:
On the advice of a friend, I decided to time myself reading today’s chapters – this is the last day of doubling up to catch up to where I’m supposed to be on the 117 day timeline. (see Day 4) Chapter Five took me 2 minutes and 11 seconds to finish, while Chapter 6 took 1 minute, 49 seconds to complete. I know I can do better.
Judge Steven Rabinowitz took a last look at the pictures of his new condo in Aspen, then turned off his iPhone, cracked his knuckles and said, “Are the People ready, Ms. Castellano?”
That’s the kind of judge I want if ever I’m on trial for manslaughter. His head’s SO in the game! Chapter 5 is a play-by-play of Yuki’s closing arguments in her trial. Chapter 6 is a play-by-play of the defense attorney’s arguments. I can’t wait to find out what the jury decides!
Yuki’s heart was still pumping adrenaline, the good kind. A bit like champagne.
This book makes my heart pump champagne, too! I fantasize that the judge turned his iPhone on again during Chapter 5 while Yuki was blathering on. He sends me this text: “OMG this sux!!!!!!! shutupshutupshutupshutup! my robe is 2 hot” Now that would’ve been awesome.
