Rainbow Snippets 5/5

Happy snippets day! I’m head down and writing these days, focusing still on a contemporary novel called Mergers & Acquisitions. I make slow progress this time of year, so you’ll be seeing snips from this novel for a few more weeks at least.

Today we have Teague, an attorney who works for a high-powered New York Law firm, whose biggest deal blew up the day before and who is now a little hung over. Just a little.

Fucking hell, morning came early.

Teague groaned and rolled over, the sunlight blasting through his half-closed shades threatening to cleave his skull right in two.

Fucking hell, his head hurt.

He pulled his phone off the nightstand and looked at it. Nine-thirty? Jesus. He’d better get up, right? He was already late to his own firing.
