Who’s up for an excerpt? (just kidding, who doesn’t love excerpts?)

I’ve been invited by BeverleyΒ and Mollie to do the 7/7/7 Snippet Challenge, and I’ve finally gotten around to do it.

For those of you not familiar with it – Challenge is too big a word for it. All it asks you to do is go to page 7 of your draft, down to paragraph 7, and post the next 7 lines! Pretty simple, right? Right.Β (I’m posting 9)

I know we all love excerpts, so here’s an additional one on top of the one you’ll get tomorrow πŸ˜‰

Although, let me add, this won’t stay on page 7 for long. Given that I’ve got a whole prologue and all of chapter 1 (and some of chapter 2) to rewrite this is going to shift pretty soon. Still, an excerpt’s an excerpt, non? πŸ˜‰

I won’t tag anyone but if you’d like to join in, go right ahead πŸ™‚

But Cephy didn’t seem to hear her. The sound of her voice had not had any effect on the girl, so Rachael moved closer.

If Cephy still didn’t react then, Rachael thought, she would go away and leave her to it.

β€œCephy?” The girl turned away from her, hugging the doll to her chest as if her life depended on it. β€œCan you hear me?” Cephy was shaking. Whether it was because of the cold or something else, she couldn’t tell.

Rachael began to turn around since Cephy didn’t answer, when she noticed something. A weak ray of light lit up her face just enough for Rachael to see what she had missed before.

Cephy was bleeding. And even though Rachael couldn’t see any obvious injuries, she could see bruises all over the small body.
