Rainbow Snippet 6th February

 


Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook Group that invites authors to post 6 sentences of their work each weekend. It can be from anything you like, your current WIP, a recent release, the golden oldie that even you had forgotten you had written, or just a scrap of an idea (as long as it has 6 coherent sentences). Nothing of your own work worth mentioning? How about a 6 sentence review of your favourite LGBTQ+ story.

This is another snippet from Comfort Zone, out last week. The first person talking is Gwen, the sister of MC Joe. She is talking to Aron about her brother. There's a lot of family in my stories and they always like to interfere. Gwen and Joe are close because as they often say their two other brothers are both dicks. In this chapter, Aron has been invited to a party and is unaware that Joe is the caterer.


“If you want to talk to him, he’s in the back now. You won’t find out unless you try, and maybe this time try asking him out somewhere rather than staying in and shagging. Shagging can be the easy bit, talking is much harder.” She looked over toward the door. “Go on, nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

Aron examined her face for a moment. She was a lot like Joe, same dark hair and same green eyes.

“What do you do?” he asked.

“I’m at Swansea studying organic chemistry, why?”

“If you ever want to work in sales, come and see me. I’m sure you’d be able to sell sand to the Saudis.”

  1. "...talking is much harder." Truth! I like her, and it sounds like she's convinced him to give it a try.

  2. Loved it. Spot on. It was quite intense to begin with then Aron threw it out into left field with a laugh. I'm sure he's put her on the back foot

  9. I like that girl, she gives really nice advice. Hope they do talk instead of shagging in a random hiding place at the back. Well, either instead or before ;)

  10. Gwen has a sensible head on her shoulders. They do talk and then go on a date with a difference.
