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!
