I've Been Tagged! (The Lucky 7 Meme)

Okay, it's taken me a while to get around to this, but I was recently tagged by Sarah L. Fox in the "Lucky 7 Meme" and it's about time I play! This is where writers take 7 lines from either page 7 or 77 of their current manuscript and post them. Sort of like my Short Snippet Saturdays, but where I have less choice which snippets to show you. Scary!

My biggest obstacle to this was figuring out just where either page 7 or page 77 exists in my (still yet to be re-drafted) manuscript of my scifi/romance/action mash-up WIP, "Fate's Apology". This is because I long ago separated each chapter into its own separate word document to get away from the supremely unwieldy single mega-document that my first meandering attempt at writing a novel turned into. That said, counting the pages as they now stand, I went to line 7 from what may or may not actually be page 77, but we'll call it that for now, okay? Here goes!

"Should they fail again, you will be held responsible. Whatever punishment with which you have threatened them will be carried out upon yourself. Do I make myself clear?"

"Yes, Marquem." Callos ended the transmission, then sat for a moment remembering the threats he had uttered: blinding, skinning, and spit-roasting. Not the way he had envisioned himself to pass from existence. With a frown on his birch-skinned features, he pulled one of his throwing stars from its pouch and tapped it on the arm of his spherniture, leaving tiny scratches in the gleaming obsidiate.

-----------------------------

So, here's the rules if you want to play:
1. Go to page 7 or 77 of your manuscript
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next seven lines or sentences
4. Tag 7 people

If youve already done this, just ignore the tag. And of course there's no pressure to participate if you'd rather not!
