I was tagged by Annie Evett for a Lucky Seven meme.
The rules are:
1. Go to page 77 in your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines.
4. Tag another 7 writers. (Done on Twitter.)
Simples. So here goes. This is taken from my NaNo 2010 novel, which I’ve just turned my attention back to editing/re-writing. It’s working title is Bobbing For Apples.
“You can’t be here.”
“I just want my daughter.” Dan pushed past her, throwing her against the wall, his hands gripping her wrist.
“Sh-she’s asleep.” Jess tried to wriggle free. Dan tightened his grip.
“I’m not leaving without her. You’re not fit to look after a dog never mind a child.” He gripped her face. She could smell whisky on his breath.
“So, why don’t you trot upstairs and fetch her like a good girl. Or do I need to make you?”
