The 7, 7, 7

Laurel Hawkes, Jillian Chantel and Melanie Atkins tagged me in their facebook posts, and I've been tagged a couple of other times on facebook, too. I think I'm ready to follow through. I'm taking the broader possibility of page 7 or 77.

1. Go to page 7 or 77 of your work in progress (or most recently completed novel).
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines and post them as they're written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 other authors, Jude Urbanski
Maria Hammerblad
Shana Galen
Tami Dee
Diane Craver
Paula Martin
Cheryl Pierson

From The Secret Door, my WIP, I chose what's currently page 7, which will change once the editing is done, but for now here it is:

Zoltan stumbled off the main road and into the bushes, collapsing next to a tree. He heard the humans scatter forward.

"Bloody Hell!"
"Let's go!"

Zoltan couldn't make out the rest of what was said, but he heard an engine roar to

Have Fun, All!
