Austin Scott Collins tagged me in the “7-7-7” challenge — to post seven lines starting at the seventh row of the seventh page of your current work in progress.
The manuscript I’m in final edits on is a work under my other author name Dalia Lance called My Home On… Whore Island
This is a modern look at what happens when a woman decides to see what it is like to have Friends with Benefits, instead of a relationship.
So here is my 7-7-7:
“I could not fall asleep for the life of me. I was crashing on a pile of blankets and pillows on his bedroom floor, which was tile. Jacob and Brian were on the queen bed.
Jacob’s mother had insisted on the sleeping arrangements. I was 16 and there would be no sharing of beds with me and the boys. I think it was about 1am when I heard a noise which woke me. I felt him behind me then, his breath on my neck, and his arm move around me pulling me towards him.
Jacob whispered in my ear “Shhh you’ll wake Brian”. I realized then I must have made a noise of some kind.”
My Home On… Whore Island will be released by the beginning of November this year.
