I saw the Lucky 7 Meme on the lovely Nadja Notariani's blog, and decided to tag myself and share.

From our follow-up to Depression Cookies, a scene from the teenager's perspective (Krista). Krista and her friend, Alex, have set up a dinner to manipulate their parents (or in Alex's case, her guardian/grandmother). Mischief is afoot.
Was it knife and spoon on one side or knife and fork? I wanted everything perfect. Just as I laid down a knife-fork pair, the doorbell rang. Utensils went in random spots as I rushed to answer the door.
“Hello, Ms. Cantrell. So glad to see you,” I said as I hugged her. “Hey, Alex.” She was nervous, so I gave her my best stick-to-the-plan look.
“You know you can call me Nana, sweetie,” Ruby said. She was elegant and fragile, like a china doll high up on display, with a head full of white hair. I wondered what she was like at my age.
It's 7 lines (okay, 8, but I wanted to finish the sentence). Seven paragraphs would probably be a better representation. But I want to share pieces here and there to motivate myself to finish the darn thing!
I hope you enjoyed the glimpse. If you are reading this and interested in sharing from your WIP, consider yourself tagged. Then share the link to your Lucky 7 Meme in the comments so I can check it out.
