Lucky Seven Meme

I was tagged by my crazy awesome friend Jamie, whom is super awesome. I was a bit worried about sharing some of this, because I knew it was around some spoilery bits, but luckily, 77 is past the majorly spoilery parts. There's some cursing in this, it'll be highlighted in black. If you don't mind cursing, then highlight it and read it all. Here goes.

     When everything is quiet, I refuse to get up. I’m so angry that I can feel my fingernails sinking into my forehead and I should stop before I draw blood, but everything is wavering and withering away. Dr. Tyson has been making me take pills and they made everything stop but the one thing that was the craziest of all. I don’t feel like I belong here, with such a normal boy, trying - and failing - to portray a normal life. I do not belong on an Earth with such normal people who don’t understand anything but the fact that I’m not like them. I am not like anyone else. I try to remind myself of the statistics, but statistics are bullshit when they don’t help you any, aren’t they? I’m just another number and I’m plotted too far away from the next, stuck between two people just like me and never able to reach either.
     Eventually, Chance says, “It’s getting dark.”
     I scoff. “It’s been dark for a while now.”
     “The sun’s setting.”
     “I wasn’t referring to the sky.”
     He sighs and wraps an arm around me to help me up. “Come on.”
     “I’m not going back home.”

Here are the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.

2.  Go to line 7.

3.  Copy down the next 7 lines-sentences or paragraphs and post them as they are written. No cheating!

4.  Tag 7 authors

5.  Let them know they've been tagged! 

I tag (not all of you have writing blogs, so you can post them somewhere else if you decide you want to, but don't want to put it on your review blog.):


and anyone else who wants to participate! I'm mainly a book blogger and I don't know too many people who have solely writing blogs, but if you wanna do this, go for it! :) You can say I tagged you, if you want.
