Gary Henderson tagged me in the Lucky Seven Challenge. The rules of the challenge are…
Go to page 7 or 77 of your latest work. Read down to the seventh line and then post online the next seven lines or sentences. Then head off and tag seven more writers.
So here are seven sentences beginning with the seventh line of page seventy-seven of the book I am writing:))
My time alone was limited. I shampooed, rinsed, stepped from the shower, and wrapped myself in a towel leaving my tangled hair dripping down my back. Slathering on my favorite body lotion, I closed my eyes and inhaled the scent, allowing myself this small indulgence. The air trapped inside the bathroom smelled of lavender, sauna steamy and relaxing. I opened the bathroom door just a crack— an escape hatch for the heat. Although I knew Gene wouldn’t tackle the stairs alone, I half expected him to be sitting on the bed waiting and watching, not remembering what I was doing in the bathroom. As the mirror above the sink cleared, I glimpsed my tired reflection. Could I noticeably age in one week?
