He called himself a Financier. A fancy title to go with the fancies of grandeur he had accumulated and which had drawn She to He. The ragged called him Uncle, the better heeled a Shylock and the Courts and their Confederates the gutter press; A Usurer. He wrinkled a red veined nose at this insult.

Walter Inman’s eyes popped open to find Sergeant Bateman leaning over him with his helmet off. No blue light in the sky. No writhing, shapeless mass descending from above.

It was over. They were still alive.

My opening line from my introduction is  "George Whitehead was only thirteen years old when he left his home at the crack of dawn and then wandered the dangerous streets of a segregated neighborhood."

Just wondering what people’s opening lines are. I’ve got a prologue to start my YA fantasy, EXCELSIOR. The first line is:

"His left leg hurts like hell."

But, the first line of the novel proper is:

"Oh, shit."

Please share!
