Lucky Seven?

The talented Jenn McLeod has tagged me in a something called ‘Lucky Seven’ and I can’t refuse the challenge!

Here are the rules

Go to page 7 or 77 of your latest work. Read down to the seventh line and then post online the next seven lines or sentences. Then head off and tag seven more writers.

The good thing is nothing good, bad or unpredictable is going to happen if you don’t join in or you break the chain. It’s just for fun 🙂

So here’s my offering from BURNING LIES – due for release on 2nd July. Enjoy!
