NaNo 2014: First lines

So, apparently this is a tradition that I knew NOTHING about. 😛 But since this is only my second NaNo, I’m hardly surprised things are still surprising me.

Speaking of surprises….

Jon wasn’t a fidgeter. But as he stood on the porch, waiting to inform the woman inside that she was now a widow… well of course he fidgeted. Anyone who didn’t know him couldn’t tell- he kept his hands clasped tightly behind his back, which was rod straight, jaw set, eyes forward. But Rook would know the lines around his eyes were too tight, would see the way he ground his teeth, would hear the occasional squeaking of his boots as he curled his toes under.
Rain noticed none of this.

Anyone else have first lines they care to share? :3
