Lucky Seven Meme

Here are the 'rules':

Go to page 7 or 77 of your latest work. Read down to the seventh line and then post online the next seven lines or sentences. Then head off and tag seven more writers.

From "Too Far Gone":

“Wasn’t she magnificent, though,” said Tosh, taking Owen’s free hand in hers, intertwining their fingers. “I couldn’t have done it,” she declared. “Not in a million years. Did you see her with Brenda?”

Rhys’s mother had never been quiet about her dislike of Gwen and her ‘flash friends.’ They had had quite a time, with Rhys’s father Barry, carefully keeping Brenda nearly out of voice range of Gwen. The older woman clearly blamed Gwen for even having her child in daycare, and for ‘forcing Rhys into the role of au pair, while she gadded about with those posh blokes, instead of staying home with her child like a proper wife.’

Gwen had put her arms around Brenda tenderly and whispered, “If I could do it again, I would do exactly the same things. Rhys loved Anwen, and he loved me. But you won’t ever have to see me again, because if I see you coming anywhere near me, I’m going to run like hell, you bitch.” Tosh had pulled Brenda away, sputtering.

Gwen had turned to the next guest on hand and murmured, “Thanks for coming, it means a lot to me that you could take the time to see them off,” and offered herself for a quick hug.

“I actually thought Brenda might have fallen right over,” Tosh smiled, “If Barry Williams hadn’t taken her in hand, I might have slugged her myself.”

And now I tag seven others:

(I don't know how to do this tag thing correctly, so I'll mail each of you!)
