777 Challenge

I usually don't do challenges like this, and the only reason I am today is because Valerie Cole made me do it. ;)

The 777 challenge is when a writer is challenged by another writer to post the seven lines of text, seven lines down on the seventh page of their work-in-progress.

Go here to check out Valerie's 777 on her blog.

Here goes.  This is from my current WIP that I'm trying to revise:

Dried grass covers my sweater and clings to my hair. Lovely, Momma is going to have my hide. I pick the fragments off. 
“What’s your problem, jerk? Walk much?” I rub the part of my forehead that took the brunt of the impact and look up to sneer at my assailant—and immediately regret my tongue-lashing. A lump catches in my throat like a big fat pill as I try to swallow back all the nasty that just flew out of my mouth.

Cash Travis, resident don’t-eff-with-me-or-I’ll-break-your-face, looms above. From the scowl on his face, I’m about to be his next victim.
