Is it still a "Lucky 7" if it's seven months later? =P

Amazingly, I was never tagged during the last round of the Lucky 7 meme, but Dan fixed that last week when he tagged me in it. Let's see what I'm doing:

The Rules:

  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
  4. Tag 7 authors.
  5. Let them know.
I was originally going to do CROSS//Revenge, but the sample was total crap so I went to my other WIP CROSS//Process  and it was much more interesting. So ba-blam. Cursing be abound.

            “Ma’am, he…” She could feel all the bile in her stomach lodged in her throat, “he tried to assault me.”
            A perturbed silence sifted throughout the office, and Cairn did not dare to look at either Jayna or Penelope the whole time she waited for a response. “How so?” Cairn thought she could detect a slight growl in Jayna’s voice.
            “I was just sitting in the tavern when he came and started harassing a few other girls. When he got to me he said some horrible things and tried to touch me inappropriately.”
            “So you stabbed him?” Penelope’s indignation was as apparent as mold on bread. “Jayna, do all of your little shitheads act with such little self-control? No wonder they sleep so close to you, you have to fucking babysit them all night.”

Yay violence!

Hey, let's just take this time to notice that I posted two days in a row! Woo!

(and no, I'm not tagging anybody. I wouldn't even know, man.)


  1. Whoa! Someone got stabbed! Wowee!

    Great excerpt. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Somebody's always getting stabbed around here =P


  2. Okay. First off, loved the scene, dialogue, characters, etc. But what made me bust out laughing was the "Yay violence!" right after it. I thought I was the only person who shouted that while reading.
