The 7-7-7 Challenge

3. Pat Esden tagged me in the 7-7-7 Challenge. Here's how it works:
The 7-7-7 Challenge:
Flip to page 77 or page 7 of your current WIP. 
Find line 7.
Post the 7 sentences that follow.
Tag 7 more writers.
Here are the seven sentences of my Paranormal Romance novel, Mystic Mound. The main character, Mindy, has just graduated from high school. She performed with her band and the show choir at her graduation (she plays the electric guitar) and her best friend, Krista, sang the solo. Brady, the class president, who she's had a crush on since junior high, gives a speech and Mindy almost trips walking down the ramp from the stage after receiving her diploma. 
             
            Ha! That would’ve been a stunning entrance to my new life as an adult.
Afterwards, I stood in the packed hallway next to Krista waiting for my mom to find me. Classmates squished by, slapping our shoulders and congratulating us on our graduation and on our performance.

Brady sauntered past. I tried not to stare at his sun-bleached hair and electric blue eyes, but he caught my gaze. “Nice job, Cooper,” he said, doing a pretend riff on an air guitar.
            He’d hardly ever said a word to me before. I didn’t even know he knew my name.
