#Lucky Seven, Fires of Justice

My turn, Lucky Seven. My wonderful Triberr mate Sandra de Helen tagged me for Lucky Seven. She blogs at Red Crested Chatter. Take a gander over and read her writing, worth the trip!

So what’ s lucky seven you ask?  A chance to show off your writing, with a twist. You have to post it as is at the time of the tagging, warts and all.  Here’s how it works.

  • Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
  • Go to line 7
  • Post on your blog the next 7 lines or sentences – as they are!!
  • Tag 7 other people to do the same

The seven sentences are from page 7 of my novella in progress, Fires of Justice.

Here’s a summary of the action thus far:  A  shifter’s been watching over fire witch Calista Reid, clandestinely taking up residence in her backyard at the same time an ominous dream has usurped her sleep.  Trying to unravel the dual but related mysteries, Calista talks with her Aunt Esmy, a powerful, ambitious witch who reluctantly raised her after her parents were killed.  In the conversation, Esmy reveals a secret she’s kept hidden and Calista, mortified, tells her to leave. The snippet below follows immediately, with Calista’s observations.

The strain of years and secrets etched lines across her forehead and sealed sadness in her eyes. She carries more than I know. Her aunt may be demanding and distant and resented the child whose needs slowed her rise up the coven hierarchy, but she had given Calista what affection she could.

“I’ll call you in a few days after I’ve had time to process all this and you can fill me in on the rest. I’m sure there’s a lot more.”

“I’ll go as you request niece.  After I tell you two things you must know if Argenta’s…..(seventh line ends here).
