(un)LUCKY SEVEN: A peek at BROKEN

I've been tagged by Kate Avelyn with the Lucky Seven. I'll be a good sport and play along.

The Rules:
  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
  4. Tag 7 other victims …er, authors.
Seeing as my current WIP isn't to 77 pages yet, I'm going with BROKEN. Hopefully, my editor won't spank me too bad for for posting these. I mean, everybody's dying for a peek at this baby, right? Well... Here ya go!
 
Alex’s shirt slides over me with a whisper of cotton, the smell of leather and death.
His front door is open, and he’s covering his scars and skin with another long sleeved-shirt. “I’ll take you to the clinic so you can get another brace, then I’ll take care of the deer,” he says.
“Okay,” sounds limp in light of what’s happened but it’s all I can force out.
His seats are covered with sheepskin seat covers. I hesitate a moment, clutching my right hand to my chest.
“Don’t worry,” Alex promises. “They’re washable.”


As for tagging people...Nope. I don't do that. Fly and be free my minions!

This sounds like a very interesting story! A hunting accident, I presume?

Thanks, everyone! I hope it keeps you hooked, Jamie and Kate! Nope, Carrie-Anne, this is definitely not a hunting accident--but I promise no real deer were hurt in the making of this novel. >:}
