#Rainbow Snippets Nov 4, 2017 – Mike & Wes

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!

Still snipping from my as yet unnamed story featuring Mike & Wes, but I’m dropping the thread I’ve been following and going back to nearer the beginning of the story. Wes is Mike’s new roommate. Whether or not that’ll be “with benefits” is still up in the air. This snippet takes place early on their first morning sharing an apartment.

Told from Mike’s 1st-person POV.

 

This week’s new snippet:

(Payback's a Bitch) Part 1 – 4-November-2017

I looked up with a start when Wes strolled into the kitchen, running his fingers through some wild and crazy bedhead, wearing sleep pants that hung so low it had to be deliberate, and no shirt whatsoever. Payback was a bitch.

I was dressed in standard “business casual,” wearing a bright blue polo shirt over khakis, so he had a decided and unfair advantage. Decided, anyway, although the fairness was in question since, although I’d taunted him last night, he was kicking it up three notches. Plus, I was on my way to work without the option of another shower to take the edge off.

My face heated, but I managed to say, “Stuff’s still on the counter if you like oatmeal,” in what I hoped was a normal voice, but I was pretty sure it sounded a bit strained—or maybe choked, as in choking on my tongue while trying to speak.
