Rainbow Snippets (30th January)

Another week, another six sentence snippet for the wonderful Rainbow Snippets community on Facebook. Here’s one last snippet from A Frost of Cares, my winter ghost story which came out on Wednesday.

There were no more footsteps, and we managed to do the washing-up and convert the armchair in my room into something Jay could sleep in all night. I changed in the bathroom, and in case you’re wondering, I didn’t wear anything provocative or even forgo my shirt—firstly because we were trying not to piss off the ghost by having sex, and secondly because it was a seventeenth-century mansion in December, in a country that still regards efficient central heating as mildly immoral. I wore my fleece pj’s, two pairs of socks, and a sweater on top of that, just like I had the last three nights.

Jay took one look at me and broke into laughter. “All you’re missing is a bobble hat.”

    Jay should warm him up! Ghost or not.

    That’s so funny. Living in Canada, in a turn of the century farm house, I am completely on his side. And have been known to go to bed like that.

      *amused* Years ago, I was in a house share with a whole load of Canadian students who hated British winters and spent the whole winter whinging about the cold because our central heating is so shit. I was thinking of them as I wrote that line.

    I really liked his caution and Jay’s reaction to it.

    Sharing a bed = sharing heat. Just sayin’…
