I was going to put this up last Friday for FEF, but then I caught the zombie flu that’s been going around the lab and took Friday off to bake the virus out of me in the sun (yay for the new fence!). Plus, it felt like I was posting a lot last week, and no one needs to listen to me talk about myself that much.
I was tagged by Shen Hart of Ink Stained Pawprints last week with the Lucky Seven meme that’s been going around. The rules are: Go to page 7 or 77 of your current manuscript. Scroll down to line 7. Then post the 7 lines following from there, exactly as they are!
I cheated a bit because page seven is all Warrior’s Ceremony setting and page 77 is just Gar complaining to his mother that Pike and Kindra don’t get along. So I flipped to page 177, found line seven, and was pleasantly surprised to realize it’s my favorite scene in the entire novel. How could I not use it? And I think it’s pretty self-explanatory, so please enjoy!
“I follow Ian Odion and his descendants. Kindra should get the horse.”
Cougar stepped forward, hand in the air, and then Al. Inu, Ocelot, and Gull followed. Goosebumps rose on Kindra’s skin as wrist after wrist shot up around her and she began to feel the full gravity of what was happening. It wasn’t about the horse at all. It was a rebellion. The warriors of Fie Eoin were choosing her over their chief. Spitting in Oak’s face with a forbidden mark.
Gar stepped forward, holding his wrist at eye-level so she couldn’t look away. When he spoke his voice was soft, meant only for her. “I follow Kindra Odion, the last warrior of Ian’s line. To the ends of Aleda. Forever.”
Now it’s your turn: what are your Lucky Seven WIP Lines?
