Excerpt from The Gateway – Page 77, first 7 lines

A fellow author friend tagged me in a post today for us to help share our work. The idea is that you share the first 7 lines of either page 7 or page 77 of your manuscript, then tag 7 other authors to do the same. I can’t follow suit via my Facebook page so I won’t be tagging anyone, but thought I’d join in the fun and share a little excerpt with you anyway.
Below is the first 7 lines of page 77 of The Gateway (the NaNoWriMo 2012 novel):
I simply glared at her; feelings of fury and resentment building up until I felt as though I might explode. Then it came. I clenched my fists together and breathed quickly, trying to contain it. But the words spilled forth before I had a chance to stop them.
‘Yes, well maybe it’s time you grew a bloody backbone of your own,’ I growled at her, the tears threatening to spill down my cheeks. I gave her one last glare as she looked like I had just slapped her, and turned on my heel and ran down the corridor. I ran and ran and ran, not seeing where I was going at any point, my tears blurring my vision, then collided headlong into Joe.
Just for fun!

    Interesting I’d like to read the rest.

    1. Thank you Jane. It’s still in first draft stage at the moment but I’m due to begin revisions in February. At the moment, I’m planning to post the first chapter on Wattpad (and also here).
