This snippet is from one of my current works in progress. It’s a hurt/comfort story about giving and accepting help, tentatively titled Pay It Forward.
“I don’t know why I suggested we come here,” Ryan said as he plonked himself in the chair opposite Bailey.
“What’d you mean?” Bailey managed to stop staring at the back of the guy who was now clearing a table nearby. “The coffee’s great.”
“Yeah, the coffee is great. It’s the company that sucks.” Ryan scowled.
“Huh?” Bailey raised an eyebrow.
“You don’t pay me the slightest bit of attention and I have to drag the conversation out of you. You only have eyes for Mr. Gorgeous over there.” Bailey followed Ryan’s gaze and found himself taking in the muscled form again.
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. In the group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

Have a great weekend and happy reading!
