Lucky Seven Meme

I got tagged in this cool beans post by the loverly Mindee Arnett!

I know it's been more than the week I promised since I posted last (more like a month really *cringes*) but I just moved into a new house so I've got a lot of Toddlers & Tiaras to watch boxes to unpack. I'm baking a baby. And on top of all that, my dog is hobbling around with a sprained shoulder. All that is, like, super exhausting, okay? So please forgive me.

Anywho, this was a fun post, and I need a nap   it was fast and easy, so I had to put it up. Plus, how can I say no to someone as super awesome and adorable and sweet and kind as Mindee?

Here are the rules for the Lucky Seven Meme:

*Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP

*Go to line 7

*Copy down the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them exactly as they're written. No cheating.

*Tag 7 authors

*Let them know

Here you have it! Drum roll please.... the 7 lines from page 77 of THE SHIFTING DARKNESS:

     “Ow.” Mitch shook his hand out of Sidney's vice grip. Four red crescent marks appeared on the back of his hand where her short fingernails dug into his skin. He whispered through his teeth, “What’s wrong with you?”
     “Sorry,” she mouthed the word back at him. There was nothing more she could do, they’d caught up to Dimitrius in his office.
     “Ms. Lake, I understand you had quite a harrowing experience.” Dimitrius glanced at the bandage on her neck. “I am grateful you have come to speak with me about it, despite this being a fresh trauma. Please, do sit down.”
