Lucky 7 Meme ~ Tagged

I've been tagged by Christine Rains with this meme. I've decided to give you my WIP, "Beyond the Black Veil" - which I am in the middle of edits on.
The Rules:
1. Go to page 77 of current WIP
2. Go to Line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs and post them as written.
4. Tag 7 authors/writers
5. Let them know.

Here is my offering from page 77, 7th line down and 7 paragraphs:

Rumbel returned with a place setting for me while other servants began to serve the meal.
Black hole network?” I asked.
Yes.” Back straight, he leaned to look past Drachen at me. “According to Einstein's special theory of relativity, time passes slowly, so your watch, for example would be wrong. If anything, it might have moved back an hour, maybe two. Or stopped working all together.”
My mouth fell open. I looked at my watch. He was right. When I had left my house it might have been around eight or nine o'clock. My watch now read two fifteen—and it had stopped. I looked up at him and sputtered. “Wait a moment, you said something about Einstein?”
He has loads of books,” Drachen explained drolly. “They had to build several book cases in both his room and his laboratory.”
But these books,” I said when an arm slid across my vision. A bowl of soup was positioned before me on the plate by the servant, and continued serving everyone else. A maid busily placed round loaves of bread between us, with slabs of butter along side them. “Where did they come from?” I finished my question.
They are brought to me,” Joha said with an indifferent shrug and lifted a spoon of soup to his mouth.

Since Im in the middle of edits, and finding anyone who has not done this is time consuming, I'm begging out of the last 2 rules. I do thank Christine Rains for thinking of me for this. (She just wants to see what I've been up to, I think (^; )


  1. Everything you write is good.

  2. Even the grocery list--actually, my huband writes those mostly since I screw up the sequence of how we shop.

    Good to see you back, Shelly!
