I've been tagged a few times for this. I've got quite a few works in progress, so would like to share seven lines from page seven from them.
Here's the latest, it's working title is I Love It, I Don't Care, and here's the snippet:
‘I’ll have a think about it.’ I smiled weakly at him. I’m just not sure I’m ready yet to be that miserable and settle. ‘I’m sure something’ll turn up. Lena got her job after work experience.’
‘Yeah, only because they were too scared not to give it to her!’ He laughed. ‘The KFC along the road’s got a sign out for vacancies. I could drop you off on my way to work. Just see how it goes from there?’
I shrugged. How can he not realise this isn’t what I want? I was floating about in the Milky Way and he had me frying chicken on the Holloway Road.
