I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh? Don’t forget to “Like” my Facebook page and/or my Facebook profile while you’re over there checking out this fantastic group!
In honor of the release of the Vows Series Box Set, I’m going with another snippet from To Love and To Cherish (the final story in the set). The box set is up exclusively at Amazon.
This snippet follows immediately after where I left off last week. Nash has come home to face his roommates (Harley and Oliver), and he’s scrabbling to find a way to tell them about the arrangement he’s just made with Emmitt (a marriage of convenience). He’s afraid of what their reaction might be so he’s trying to head that off by redirecting the conversation to their own relationship.
Last week ended with:
Harley pointed a finger at [Oliver]. “Don’t put this all on me. You’re just as capable of asking as I am.”
This is told from Nash’s 3rd-person POV (although Harley and Oliver are the only players in this scene):
“Oliver had the decency to blush. “Okay, I guess that’s a fair point, but you’re the one still insisting we keep waiting.”
“Don’t put words in my mouth.”
“What? That’s pretty much what you just said.”
“I was explaining why we hadn’t, not insisting that we shouldn’t.”
Oliver pinched his lips and placed his hands on his hips. “So?”
“So what?” Harley asked.
“Do you want to get married?”
