The school work is ramping up again now that we’re down to the last two weeks. I’m rather drowning in it.
Still with These Haunted Hills. Brendan has consented to read a little of the new book to Josh fire-side.
Josh practically bounced out of the cabin. Grinning to himself, Brendan slipped his computer into the messenger bag then fetched his Thomas Tew rum to whip up the dark and stormies.
Josh had the fire pit roaring when Brendan got outside. It had gotten dark enough for the stars to come out. Brendan sat in the lawn chair after handing over one of the drinks. He tilted his head back and sipped the richly spiced drink. He always chose the spiciest ginger beer brands he could find. “Damn, the sky is really crystalline isn’t it? I love it out here. I didn’t think I would. I was terrified to come out here.”
“I did get that vibe from you. You didn’t seem like a country kind of guy.”
“No, not really but I am loving this way more than I thought. I haven’t seen this many stars in forever. I can see why you’d like to head out into the desert for some stargazing. You know, Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas has some nice star gazing and then you can also have all the fun of the Vegas strip too. Are there foxes to research out there?”
“Hmmm I’m not sure. There is the Sierra Nevada or High Sierra fox. It’s a subspecies of red fox and it highly endangered but I think its range is the California desert.”
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!
