There's a fun meme going around facebook: Authors are asked to go to either page 7 or page 77 of their work in progress, and go down seven lines. Then we are asked to share the next seven lines or sentences as is. I played along and, since my seven lines are from Crossfire, I decided to share them here, too.
“What?” I smile. “Like a Disney
movie? Little chipmunks and bunnies?”
She laughs. “Something like that.
But they don’t sing, and they mainly come if they need something, like they’re
sick or hungry or hurting.”
I know she has pegged me as one of those - an
animal that’s hurting. Well, I’m not going to argue with her there, but my
wounds are a lot worse than a broken wing, a lot deeper than a thorn in the
paw. “And can you help them?”
up at me, gray eyes full of sorrow and longing. “I can if they let me.”
So, any guesses as to who is speaking? I can't wait until I'm at liberty to share more! Better get revising...
