Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook Group that invites authors to post six 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 six coherent sentences). Nothing of your own work worth mentioning? How about a six sentence review of your favourite LGBTQ+ story.
This week my snippet is again from Comfort Zone. In this scene we meet Gwen again, Joe's sister. Aron has been invited for dinner at Joe's parents' house for the first time. We all know how siblings can try to embarrass us
Gwennie fixed her brother with a stare then grinned. There was something entirely wicked in that smile, and Aron feared what was coming next.
“Joe says you’re very fond of his donuts.” Aron wasn’t going to back away from a challenge.
“Okay, I admit, you’ve got me banged to rights. I love his donuts. They’re so round and sweet. My favorites are the ones with the creamy filling.” He jerked forward as Joe immediately kicked his ankle and was gratified to see Gwennie almost spit out her food and choke. He wondered if he’d gone too far as her father patted her back.
Andy winked at him. “I think Aron won that round, love.”
