Yay, I was hoping I'd get a chance to do this one, and McKenzie McCann tagged me! The rules are:
- Go to page 77 of your current MS

- Tag 7 other writers
- Let them know!

“Or at least you liked it when Luke teased you,” Nick said.
“Aly and Lu-uke, sitting in a tree,” Ben sang.
“Guys, knock it off,” I said. “It’s bothering her.”
Hm, I don't like that without context. It makes the boys sound mean.
And I'm tagging...
