7 More Lines and Fast Five Friday

Thank you guys for your encouragement Wednesday as well as your interest Monday! It really made me feel better. I was asked to post more from my WIP, so I thought, "I shall!" I decided to show secondary character Andyrsn breaking up an argument between Cyan and Ghuli, who was disobediently not present in Monday's 7x7x7x7 snippet.

“You’re both stressed. Just calm down.” Cyan paced the floor as Ghuli folded her arms. “Ghuli, I’m sorry, but I have to side with Cyan here.” The look she gave him conveyed a slight betrayal, but he stood firm. “We’re watchmen. I know you want to find this scroll thing, but your safety is more important.”

Ghuli’s scowl melted away, but she drew her knees up and hugged them. “What if finding the Great Scroll is the key to my safety?”

“Have we not been enough so far?” Cyan asked, the strength in his voice making Andyrsn jump, but Ghuli yelled right back.

“You’re not invincible, Cyan. I could lose you, too!” Cyan’s jaw hardened, and a pained look came across his reddening face before he stormed toward the door. “I’m not having this fight with you anymore.”

This week, the Cover Girls would like us to list the 5 books that had us bawling or near tears. These I can put in order from hardest sobs to mistiness. lol

Stephen King's The Green Mile (bawling uncontrollably!)
S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders (bawling)
N.K. Jemisin's The Broken Kingdoms (crying)
Terri Bruce's Thereafter (near tears/inconsolable)
Robert Olen Butler's The Deep Green Sea (near tears)

Any books have you dying of the feels?


  1. Two relatively recent books that had me sobbing were ME BEFORE YOU by JoJo Moyes and FIVE DAYS LEFT by Julie Lawson Timmer. A box of tissues should come with each of them. Sheesh! :)

  2. Ooh, great snippet. Love all the tension in it!

    (So sorry about Pitch Wars, btw. Just noticed that post while catching up with the blogosphere. *hugs*)
