Seven lines from Prohibited Passion

Amy Jo Fleming tagged me in a Seven Lines post, and here are seven lines from my novella, Prohibited Passion:

“I’m not the sort you should be spending time with,” CeeCee remarked, seeing Ruth’s hesitation. “Go home, Ruth. Back to your safe bed.”
“I don’t want to.” The words popped out before she could stop herself. “I’d rather be here.”
CeeCee took a final drag on her cigarette and crushed it under her heel. She exhaled, making wavering smoke rings. Ruth smiled.
“All right then.” CeeCee held out her hand. “Come with me and I’ll show you the other side.”

I’m not tagging anyone else, but if you feel like putting up seven lines, drop me a note in the comments! I’d love to read your work!

  1. I LOVE those seven lines, Alyssa-clinched! I’m not sure what you meant by being tagged, or if I’m supposed to post this here, but here it is, my contribution:

    The woman chuckled, keeping her gaze fixed on Beeji. “I never suspected you were the Chandra who had an appointment with Karishma. . .Deedee ji.
    A flash of lightening. A rolling thunder peels across the dark, ethereal plain. . .
    Beeji smiled again.
    “Yes, what a coincidence, Bhanji. And how long have you been Miss Chawla’s personal secretary?”
    The dark plane rumbled with laughter.
    The woman’s potent eyes flashed, but she too managed a smile.
    “No, no, no, Deedeeji, I’m not Karishma’s secretary. Perhaps you didn’t hear me the first time? I SAID I’m her mother.

    • Usually with this ‘seven lines’ meme, people tag other bloggers and writers to post their seven lines. But I just figured that anyone who wanted to post, would. :)
