Rainbow Snippets 12/2

Hello again all!

For those of you that don’t know, Rainbow Snippets says it “is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of original fiction. Every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+.”

I took a short break because November was hella busy, and also because what I’ve been writing just didn’t feel ready to share yet. But I have more of my m/m/m, which now has a new title, Stable Hill. In this snip, Oscar is at his father’s farmhouse where Russ, the stable manager, lives. Russ has had a thing for Oscar for a long time, but Oscar has been untouchable, having lost his husband three years prior to cancer. That could be (is) changing. 😉 It’s slightly over six sentences, more like nine, but I couldn’t cut anything!


Russ didn’t move at first, he didn’t dare, but he could only stand like this – this close-  for so long. Finally, he grew impatient and kissed Oscar again. This time Oscar leaned in, cupping his jaw with warm, shaking fingers.

This was the real deal. This was happening. That’s it, he thought. Just relax. Breathe, and let me do this for you. He covered Oscar’s hand with his own, but Oscar whimpered at the touch and froze suddenly, breaking their kiss again.


Have a great weekend!
