Lucky 7 Meme - Again!

Yesterday, I saw that Kyra Lennon had done the Lucky 7 Meme again, and posted a scandalizing snippet from her soon-to-be released Game On sequel, Blindsided. Check out her snippet if you haven't already, it's excellent

It made me realise I haven't shared anything from Cupid recently, so I thought I'd take part. But first, a quick Cupid update. 

I'm currently doing a read through/ edit where I'm fixing any problems I find, and also changing from past tense to present tense. It's going really well, I've done 32,067 out of 67,760 words this week. It's also helped pull me back into the story, and I feel confident once my revisions are done, I'll be able to finish it off.

The Rules:  

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

Anyway, here are my seven lines, from page seventy-seven.



“How are you? Have you been keeping well?” Delphia asks.
“Yeah … erm, not too bad thanks,” I reply, trying to keep my eyes on her face, and not my surroundings. While visiting Phoebus' home is like stepping into the future, visiting my Cupid parents is like taking a trip into the past. I've fallen into Ancient Greece, and I half expect Dionysus, with his chaplet of vine leaves on his head, to come rushing past with his harem of maenads.
“And your Cupid duties are going well?” 
“Yeah, I'm getting there slowly, I brought another couple together this week. How about you, is everything here all right?”
“Yes, we're fine. We want to know if you're okay,”  Stephanos says. “Because I was at Celestea's palazzo recently, and I heard some things …”
Ah … so Stephanos and Delphia already know about the Abraxas situation. 
      “Yeah … I … erm, was going to tell you.”
“Has Abraxas been visiting you a lot?”
