I would like to thank @eerie_o for inviting me to the 7/7/7 challenge.
The rules of the 7/7/7 Challenge are:
- Go to page 7 of your WIP.
- Scroll down to Line 7.
- Share the next 7 sentences in a blog post.
- After the excerpt, tag 7 other writers to continue the challenge.
Since these are the LAST and only lines on page 7 of my WIP (Avelynn #2), I will give them all to you!
“The men that survived the shield wall against the Vikings, the men who fought loyally under your banner are being rounded up and executed as traitors. Their widows and fatherless children blame you and your treachery for their plight. They don’t want you here. They want you dead.”
A strangled cry escaped my lips, and I looked at him in horror. “Bertram, please. . .”
“You are not welcome here, Avelynn. You have lain with the devil and only God can save you now.” He tossed his staff, the wood rolling to a stop at my feet. “I suggest you leave before the people get here. They will arrive on the morrow.” He walked away and did not look back.
OOOOh, how’s that for tension! 🙂 Bam!
I’m supposed to find seven other authors who have to complete this task, but everyone I know has already done it, lol. Instead, I will direct you to the beautiful C.M. McCoy who just completed her 7/7/7 challenge and invited me to finally join the in crowd. 😀
