7 x 7 x 7 x 7

Thank you Vania from VLC Photo for challenging me with this writing game. How to play:

Starting at the seventh line of the seventh page of your current WIP, post the next seven lines and tag seven more authors to join in the fun.

Title: Maggie Rose Among Monsters

Genre: YA Magical Realism

The lines:

In theory, Monsters have equal rights to Humans, but even today we live separately, or segregated as some people would say. The only Monsters I’ve been face to face with are here in this museum. I’d never been outside the gates of New York City, an all Human city.

I looked again into the Phooka’s vacant plastic eyes. Even though I’m grateful that I don’t have to worry about coexisting with these Monsters, I couldn’t help but feel wrong about standing here staring at one, free to do as I please while he had died, or been murdered more likely, in order to become a Monster on display. I wondered if Monster towns had Humans on display.

“Maggie, Mr. Jessup says we can break for lunch,” Jeremy, another art student said as he passed by.
