Lucky Seven: ASHES AND WINE

Cindi Madsen tagged me in this fun little thing making the rounds on the writing circuit.

 Here are the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS 2. Go to line 7 3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating. 4. Tag 7 authors 5. Let them know

This is from my ASHES AND WINE novella from Entangled. I'm just into the first pass edits. So, God knows what this bad boy looks like. It's a scene between Tessa and her friend Mercy and there is much tequila involved.

She needed to get some water in her or she was going to be absolutely useless by morning. Did tequila draw every last bit of moisture out of your mouth? “Tell me how you really feel.”

“Alaric, who names their kid Alaric? That’s just asking for their kid to be an overbearing, arrogant piece of overbearing—”

“You said overbearing.”

Mercy stabbed a finger at her. “It bears repeating!”

Tessa forced a wide plastic cup into her hand, half full of water. “Drink this.”

“What is it? More tequila?”

“Water.”

Mercy made a raspberry noise with her lips, but glugged back the contents anyway. “It should be tequila,” she said sadly. “I think I might be in love with Alaric. Stupid name.”

And now...tagging.
