Lucky 7!

One of my wonderful online friends, KE. Saxon, tagged me in the 7, 77, 7 game. I've seen it on Facebook, and I'm delighted someone pulled me in! Yay! =D

The idea is to:
  • Post seven lines from an unpublished work of fiction
  • Go to page 7 or 77 in the manuscript
  • Find line 7
  • Post the next 7 lines or sentences as they are (no cheating, lol)
  • Tag 7 other authors to do the same.
Mine doesn't have 77 pages yet - I've only written 45 - so took page 7 instead.

When Sharon didn’t answer, her friend said cheerily, “I’ll tell you what, if you want to try this out, I’ll come over to your place and wait for you. If you don’t show up and don’t call me, I’ll get the police. If he follows you home and doesn’t want to leave, I’ll shoot him with Big Pink. If you don’t want him to leave, I’ll sneak out the back. How’s that sound?”

Big Pink was Mona's Mossberg pump rifle, a pink model 500 made for women. She also had a pink AK47, and a pink Glock. Come to think of it, her friend was quite a walking armoury, girl style. “I love you.” Mona grinned, "I love you too, but not in that way."

Now, for seven friends to challenge... I'll pick Christy Elkins, Chris J. Randolph, Patty Froese, Linda Ann Rentschler, Angela Britnell, Merry Farmer, and Shaunna S. Gonzales,

  1. Love yours! Here is mine, page 7 just like yours. :)

    I felt the heat of embarrassment rush across my cheeks when Johnny snickered at her correcting me. I slugged him in the arm, making him wince. I thought about slugging Libby too, but there was something about her I couldn’t quite figure out. Did I like her gusto or did I want to see her fall on her face? I wasn’t really sure, but either way I was in. “Well what do I do?”

    Libby smiled and clapped lightly with excited hands and it made me feel like I was at a tea party. “Can you whistle?”


The Universe - or is it Fate - is fickle.

If someone had told me yesterday that an asteroid would collide with Earth, that we'd have a flood of Biblical proportions, or that a so...
