Rainbow Snippets (27th March)

Happy Easter everyone. Don’t eat too much chocolate 😉

A little bit more Raif and Arden this week, from my current WIP, Recovery.

His silence must have lasted too long, because Arden said, that hard laughter in his tone again, “Ah, once more I disappoint you, my Raif.”
“No,” Raif said, stung and ashamed. “No.”
“No?” It was still that faintly mocking tone, but there was something else there, something Raif recognised with a sudden twist of his heart as a ancient and fathomless loneliness.
Arden had lost his hoard, and only had Raif to replace them, and Raif had spent much of his time being irritated with him.

 

Rainbow Snippets is a wonderful little Facebook group in which writers gather every weekend to post a six-sentence peek at one of their works. All genres are included but the snippets must be from books with a LGBTQIA+ protagonist.
