Rainbow Snippets – Feb 24


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+.”

It’s been a while since I posted one of these, and I miss doing them!

This is a snip from my current WIP, tentatively titled Mergers and Acquisitions. Jason is a stripper that goes by Dallas at a club in Hell’s Kitchen (New York City) and Teague is an attorney who is this close to making partner at his high powered law firm. Teague’s had a bad day and ends up at Jason’s (Dallas’) club. It’s a tiny bit more than six lines, but some of the lines are one word, so… forgive me!



“Oh, boy.” Dallas winked at him and Teague raised an eyebrow.

“Oh, boy?”

“Straight outta Texas, everyone give it up for the beautiful boy from the Lone Star State, the Wiggle Room’s own yellow rose. It’s Dallas!”

“Kiss me.”

“What?” Had he heard that right?

A spotlight hit the bar as the music started, making Teague squint, and the next thing he knew Dallas had a hand behind his head and was kissing him. Teague was so startled he just kissed the cowboy right back. A shiver shot up his spine and as Dallas pulled away, Teague got a look into the cowboy’s moss green eyes.

Dallas laughed and winked, delighted, and stood right up on the bar as the first verse kicked in.


Have a great weekend!
