“I’m sure we can all work this out once the Underwoods arrive. No need to involve the authorities for childish nonsense.”
“Are you kidding me?” I pressed my eyes closed tight and counted to ten.
One, two, June is a dumbass, three, four, no one is gonna help Nola, five, six, she needs someone to take her to the police, seven, eight, I’m about to do something stupid, nine, ten.

Here are 7 lines, starting on page 7, at line 7 of my current Work In Progress; Forever Home. I was tagged my JC Hannigan, who tagged all writers reading her blog. I will do the same. Are you a writer? Are you reading this? Tag, you’re it.
Forever Home? What’s it about?
It’s the first book in a contemporary series about a family of four brothers in East Texas. Forever Home tells the story of Ezra and Starice who come together to help Ezra’s young daughter when his ex-wife loses custody of her.
What the heck is going on in those seven lines?
Our heroine, Starice, is trying to get help for a little who came into the preschool where she works with bruises. Money and influence in a small town are a huge roadblock as her boss doesn’t want to anger the child’s parents over a “misunderstanding”. So what’s a good-hearted soul to do? Drive her to the police station yourself! Technically it is kidnapping but a girl has to do what’s right.
