This post is in response to Trifecta's Trifextra Weekend Challenge. They asked that I give them a 33-word opening line to my book. That's it. Make them want to read the next 333 pages of my work. This is a great concept. It really took me a long time to complete. I ended up going back to the first story I ever submitted to Trifecta, called The Fire and decided to work off of that. Enjoy!
