I’m still having internet issues. On the plus side, I’m hiding in the Parents’ game room because it’s underground and about 65 degrees (and it’s mid-90s outside). My stomach is giving me issues (I was supposed to have surgery on it but it’s not going to happen this year after all) so if I’m slow responding, that’s why.
This week is from something very rough and new, aiming it at one of the charity anthologies for the Pulse (or else a freebie down the road). It’s from the Kept Tears universe. It’s coming up on the anniversary of the day Aaron suffered the explosive amputation of his arm (and nearly his leg). Rhys (and Corrine) are trying hard to keep his spirits up and love him through the hard times.
Snippet (It’s one sentence over, forgive me but I had to put in Rhys’s rejoiner)
Rhys understood the hells Aaron had seen. Sharing his pain didn’t come naturally. Even though Aaron knew Rhys wasn’t likely to reject him at this point, the fear lurked deep inside him.
Aaron opted for the safer path. He pointed his truncated arm down. “I figured you wanted to be serious when I saw you wore trunks instead of your usual nakedness.”
“I didn’t want to distract you with my overwhelming physical beauty.”
If you’d like to play along, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook community where we post up 6 sentences of one of our LGBT stories every Saturday. It’s been fun and you can find it here. Be sure to check out all the offers! It’s been a great supportive group!
