What is the 7x7x7x7 Writing Prompt? Well I picked it up from Shilpa who blogs at a rose is a rose is a rose .
  1. Grab the 7th book from your bookshelf.
  2. Open it up to page 7.
  3. Pinpoint the 7th sentence on the page.
  4. Begin a poem/a piece of prose that begins with that sentence
  5. Limit it in length to 7 lines/7 sentences.
The 7th book on one of the shelf of my bookshelf is…Sydney Sheldon's Mistress of the game
it says......"Lexi Templeton took a deep breath."

so, here's my take on the prompt.

Lexi Templeton took a deep breath
If it had to be done, the time was now.
She took out a .45 caliber silver Smith and Wesson from his cupboard. 
She crouched behind the sofa and waited for him to come.
He walked in 10 minutes later, her daughter in tow, all tied up with a cellophane tape.
Tears streamed down her cheeks as she aimed for the center of his head and pumped in 3 bullets one after another. 
His face froze as he fell down and saw her emerge from her hideout, a smile on her sweat drained face. 

This is in response to the  Write Tribe prompt

The valuable gift....

I remember being wheeled into the labour OT with Usha. Nervous prayers on our lips and dreams in our hearts! 

We promised to gift each other’s child a pair of silver anklets.

As I open my eyes, the nurse smiles at me. “It’s a girl.”


“Her daughter’s heart now beats inside your little one.”
