RAINBOW SNIPPETS – 2019-11-16 – When Are You? #RainbowSnippets

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!

This week I’m snipping from my current WiP, When Are You?

I don’t have a blurb yet, but it’s a time travel story. This is the opening scene. The story is unedited, so please squint as needed.

From Leo’s 3rd-person POV:

When Are You? - 2019-Nov. 9

Prologue: Newlyweds

Vincent Allen Bailey.” A wince supplemented Leo’s grumble. Damn, but Vinnie’s elbow was sharp, and he totally deserved the full name treatment for digging that pointy bone into Leo’s ribs. Even so, Leo grinned as he rubbed the sore spot.

Vinnie snorted. “You’re worse than me.”

Leo snickered and didn’t bother to pretend he didn’t know what Vinnie was talking about, let alone deny it. Bailey. It had been Leo’s surname since birth, but Vinnie had only acquired it a week earlier.

When Are You? - 2019-Nov. 16

After Vinnie’d made the decision to change his name when he and Leo married, he’d gone around testing out the sound of the name. Vinnie Bailey. Vincent Bailey. Vincent Allen Bailey. Leo’d heard it softly sing-songed so many times over the past month—and written with a flourish on scraps of paper he’d found throughout their old home where Leo had last been stationed in North Carolina.

“Anyway,” Vinnie hissed as they stepped out of the dentist’s office and inconspicuously hitched his head toward the other side of the street. “There he is again.”

    1. Thank you! 💞

      Leo and Vinnie don’t know his name or anything about him at this point, but they will definitely see more of him, and he will become critical to the storyline. 😬

    1. Thank you! 💗 Ah…”he” will become important, and the MCs will make a point of finding out who he is, but for now, he’s just “creepy guy.”

  1. Aw, the ‘sing song voice’ repeating his married name and the little slips of paper are so adorably cute! – heart – but this guy they’re seeing seems a little ominous / intriguing…
