Long Path to Desire

I was was tagged by Rebecca Emin for a Lucky Seven Excerpt.

The rules are simple:
1. Go to page 77 in your current manuscript
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next seven lines as they are – no cheating
4. Tag 7 other authors (Done on Facebook)

So here’s the extract from my current work-in-progress, ‘The Long Path to Desire’:

Beside me, you turn, place an elbow under your face and mutter something. I can see you from here, trace your face carefully, lovingly and in detail. I’d be lost without you, without this sister. In life in general, as well as today, the day things could all change. The day of the interview and entry into that world of high ceilings and walnut bannisters, and porfolios and busyness.

In just a few short weeks it has transformed you, has allowed a freedom you’ve never had before.

So what do you think: how’s it shaping up so far?  Still plenty of work left to do…..
