Lucky 7 meme (#atozchallenge)

I was tagged by Jenna at Meandering in a field of words for the Lucky 7 meme. So... YAY I HAVE AN L WHICH DOESN'T REQUIRE ME TO THINK.
What this means, apparently, is I have to take a current WIP, go to page 77, down to line 7 and pick the next 7 sentences to share.
My current WIP is actually a compilation of short stories so it doesn't get to page 77 so what I did was I took last year's NaNoWriMo, which is languishing in the world of "I'm gonna get round to editing this later" and used that.
The WIP is called Shell, and the 7 sentences are as follows:
She didn't make a move as they dragged Shell in to the room, heavily burdened with chains. His face was bruised, his body scarred. Each soldier had taken his turn to plant at least one fist or a foot deeply into him. He huddled against himself now, his face turned carefully to the ground.
"You can do as you wish to him," the princess said, slowly intoning each word.
"And his magic?"
"We have leeched it out of him."
So I'm supposed to tag 7 people, who are:

Gonna be dropping by to let them know I tagged them. =)
