I missed last week and nearly missed this one, it’s the start of the semester which is always brutal.
I’ll dive right back into These Haunted Hills It’s picking up after Brendan ran back to Columbus after a b it of a break down with Josh. It’s been a while since we’ve seen her but Heather is his ex-wife with whom Brendan is still friends (and I changed her name since we last saw her) It’s been a long this time just to capture the moment.
Pulling into the lot for his favorite coffee shop, Brendan glanced around. Heather’s car wasn’t here yet but she would come like he asked. He ordered the largest cappuccino they offered and a chocolate zucchini muffin – he’d been good in the Hocking Hills, not too many sweets and he’d been walking. He wouldn’t want to get paunchy. He’d look pregnant what with his little frame. What he wouldn’t give to at least have shoulders like Josh did. Finding a seat, Brendan pulled out his cell phone.
I’ll be back tomorrow. I still want to go to the hotel with the team. He grimaced slightly as he sent the text. People mocked him for not using text speak and texting full sentences but he couldn’t help it. Anything else made him cringe. Josh texted back with a single thumb’s up emoji. Oh well, he couldn’t have everything but really an emoji? Of course, his brother was in the habit of randomly sending him poop emojis for the hell of it.
A second text came in. Will have everything ready. Hope U R OK. Call if you need anything.
Oh how tempting that was text speak aside. He probably would call Josh tonight. Whatever this was between them, this thing he had battered and bruised in the last twenty four hours needed nurturing. Even a quick call would probably do it. He considered calling that very moment but was saved from his neediness by Heather’s arrival.
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!
