Rainbow Snippets ~ 28th February

Today’s Rainbow Snippet is from my short story

The Handyman Can.

It’s currently available for early download at Pride Publishing

and will be on general release on Amazon from 1st March.



This continues from the first snippet I posted HERE

He peered through the slats of the Venetian blinds strung across the study window and out into the garden, waiting expectantly. His cock stirred, a familiar and very welcome tingle, already anticipating what, or who, he was about to see.

Several whirrs of the motor’s pull cord rattled the near silence until it caught and the lawn mower burst into life, filling the quiet of the house. Alex leaned forward, adjusting the blinds, ready to ogle his gardener as he strode across the lawn. In his eagerness, Alex scattered papers onto the wooden floor.

Damn it!

He scooped them up and slapped them back down by his keyboard. Alex moved beside his desk, to one side of the window, not wanting to be caught snooping already.

Come on. Come on. Hurry up!

  1. I think he should open the blinds for a better view and sit at his desk pretending to work… (Knocking the papers off the desk sounds like something I’d do.)


  2. I love how much he’s anticipating this and how it makes him clumsy. That must be quite a gardener 😉


  3. *snicker* Bet the gardener already knows he watches. 🙂


  4. He seemed so impatient, I really wanted him to go down and make the first move.


  5. Something tells me the gardner already knows. He doesn’t seem super subtle!
