Okay – I’ll play – CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Aightball challenged me to take part in this 7x7x7x7 challenge– (Any math brains want to figure this out, because you know that I’ve already solved the problem?)

The basics of the challenge are simple: starting at the seventh line of the seventh page of a current WIP post the next seven lines and tag seven more authors to join in the fun.

Okie dokie, McSmokies — Here is my excerpt —

Title:  SCARRED SOULS

Genre: Young Adult Psychological Horror (Psst, don’t get scared. I’ll hold your hand.)

Background info that you should know beforehand – Nikki/Nicky is a person suffering from a dual personality (I’ll save you the real psychological mumbo jumbo) – this excerpt is taken when Nikki is ‘waking’ up from one of her disassociative episodes.

EXCERPT:

Jacen pulls out his cell and flashes the display, “10:45.”

Nikki counts backward in her head. Nearly four hours had disappeared. Her mouth goes dry. Was it even the same day? She feels in her back pocket for her cell and presses the button, but nothing happens. She presses it again, still nothing. Dead battery, it had to be. 

“Need to borrow my phone?” Jacen asks, watching her fidget.

Nikki whips back around toward him, “What?”

He proffers his cell phone. She almost takes it but stops. She can’t call her mom right now. He’d hear how weird her end of the conversation would be, and then he’d ask questions that she wouldn’t want to answer. Nikki bit down hard on her lip, her anxiety soaring. 

****

I shall list those I challenge on my twitter at @hrnorrod.
