777 Blog Hop! I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by the incomparable Melanie Conklin in the 777 Blog Hop.
Those who have been tagged have to open their current work-in-progress (WIP), and go to the 7th pages, 7 lines down, and post the next 7 lines.
I'm loathe to share unedited, first-draft work (it's like seeing an unfinished painting *clutches pearls*), but not only am I really excited (and burdened) by this project, I love Melanie dearly so here goes...

This is my first venture into the Science Fiction realm. I'm a fantasy kid at heart, but this story has been nagging at me for quite a long time.

Christopher "Kit" Song, and his best friends, twins, Hannelore & Liam Hamilton build an unidentifiable machine based on schematics that were uploaded to Kit's laptop.
This device teleports them to what quickly becomes the scene of a murder, and from there they're taken to the bottom of the ocean where a highly advanced - and dangerous - society is in desperate need of its long lost hero.

“But…” Liam’s eyes widened.

“How?” Hannelore finished her brother’s thought.

Kit turned around to see their point of entry. A much more sophisticated version of the device that was attached the doorframe of Kit's closet was built into the top of the closed door in front of him. This version of the machine made theirs look like a crazy person's trash sculpture, but nevertheless, the device they constructed had worked.

“I knew it,” Kit grinned. "We built a real teleporter!"

I cringe when I see unpolished words, but there you have them!
Now I need to find other people to tag!

Hope you're having an excellent week.

Until we meet again...
