Rainbow Snippets #1 ~ 31st January

Today’s Rainbow Snippet is from my soon to be released short story, The Handyman Can.

RAINBOW SNIPPETS

All it took was the clack of the garden gate closing. Alex Sucre’s breath paused, his heart raced. He shot a look from the spreadsheet on his laptop to the digital clock at the top corner of the screen.

Mmm… He’s early today.

Alex waited in case he’d misheard, but there it was, the gritty roll of the lawn mower on the path down the side of his house. Warm excitement rippled through him—his breath quickened, his heart pounded just that bit faster.

 

Thanks for reading!

Please visit the Rainbow Snippets Facebook Group for more links to great fiction. The gang posts throughout the weekend, so check back a few times if you can.

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.

  4. *pokes screen* Well, come on, what’s next?

    Not sure if they’re lovers or if he’s just the object of Alex’s fantasies, but the anticipation in this scene makes me want more…
