If you’re new to Rainbow Snippets, it’s a Facebook group where authors of LGBTQ fiction post a six-sentence snippet of a WIP, a published story, or a recommendation, every weekend. You can see all the snippets here.

This week’s snippet is from Longing for Shelter. A little Jacob, Caleb and Thaddeus for your weekend ♥

Jacob watched them, an empty, aching hole opening up inside him. He was perhaps the only one who truly knew the difference between the broken, lost Alpha who had settled in this small community all those years ago—alone and isolated from everyone—, and the man that sat in front of him now—a father, a husband, the man who had built this house and built a family from nothing. Jacob’s heart ached. “I can’t believe they would treat you that way. Especially after all these years.”
Caleb smiled. He rocked Thaddeus one more time then kissed his hair and set him down on the ground. The snuffling boy waddled over to Jacob and collapsed in his lap. Caleb watched Jacob pick Thaddeus up and cradle him against his chest, saying, “You’re a good hearted soul, Jacob, so you expect everyone to be the same. You shouldn’t take it personally. I know I won’t.”

    Children know a good soul. This scene, I believe, might be of importance later. Nice Snippet!

    There is such warmth in this undercut with the tension of how he was treated. I wanted to know more.
