Camp nano kicked off well but I’m already flagging (It’s hard to write when you’re visiting the parents).
Here’s more of These Haunted Hills. We left off when Brendan in the bathroom looking for ticks. We’re in Josh’s head and I skipped over some of the angst and self doubt he was feeling during his wait on Brendan. It’s a few sentences longer than 6.
Josh shut the door and quickly stripped down, acutely aware that he was no more comfortable being the naked one with Brendan just on the other side of door. At least the awkwardness killed any unwanted action certain parts of him might have gotten up to otherwise. He ran his fingers through his hair feeling for ticks. Finding none there nor reflected in the mirror, he checked the inside of his clothing before redressing.
“Are you okay you seem a little …flat? You’ve been pretty much a bottle of champagne since I’ve met you.”
Josh chuckled, wagging his head. “Just feeling bad about the tick thing, maybe the ghost too.”
“I didn’t mean to make you feel that way.”
“It’s not you. It’s all in my head. Residual crap from high school. I’m fine.”
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!
