Kate M. Colby has graciously tagged me in the 777 Challenge. The point of the challenge is to share seven lines from the seventh page of your current work-in-progress then tag seven writers to do the same. I’m sharing a portion of A Time to Die, the final chapter in my very first series. It’s a conversation going between the main character, Carter, and the woman filling in as his mother figure, Eva.
“What can I do to help?” I said it with the conviction of an adult, which quite literally terrified me more.
“She needs to be around kids her age, kids like her. I need people who can help her, but I don’t know where we can turn to anymore. This place makes me question if it’s really her talking to me any longer. I want to stop being afraid of my daughter, Carter.”
My mind races with where I could take them both to feel and stay safe. Every major city is out in my opinion and all that pops up is the Dakota District. They could live with Benny and his family, but then I have no clue if I will ever see them again since it would be a one way ticket.
Writers to Pick On:
J.B. Salsbury (I already know she won’t do this, lol)
