The Lucky 7 Meme

I was tagged by Megan over at Paws, Fangs, & Smiles. Looks like fun to me, so here I go!

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know

This is from The Doc Is In, because The Doc Is Out doesn't have 77 pages
“Hmm… that’s a hard one.” Mrs. Taylor lowered her bowl, scrunching her face in thought. “I would investigate. Find out which was telling me the truth. Sometimes your brain sees only what’s on the surface while your heart tells you what’s on the inside of the problem. Sometimes your brain is right, sometimes your heart is right. Gather all the facts you can, then make a decision.” She nodded then put a spoon of rice in her mouth.
Lauren smiled and uncurled her legs. “Then that’s what I’ll do.” She nodded, a new resolve coursing through her. “Can I use the phone to make a long distance call?”
“Long distance?” Mrs. Taylor asked, confused. “I guess, sure. Who do you know long distance, though?”
“We met a kid while we were on our trip. He gave me his number.”
“A he?” The older woman smirked. “Go ahead darling, but don’t forget about Bryan.”
“I won’t.” She couldn’t. And depending on the outcome of this call, it could save Bryan’s life.
Three days passed. Three days of no Bryan at night. Three days of going to the warehouse and not finding Bryan there, either. Three days of no one knowing where Bryan even went during the day, just that he got up before the sun came up and didn’t come home until late.
I ran out of paragraphs, so I went into Chapter 7! Obviously!

Now, on to tagging 7 authors. Sadly, I don't have 7, so, here we go!
