Rainbow Snippets – 09.01.16

stumble forward

Okay, I think I’m going to be making this the last one from Stumble Forward…I’m running out of story! Pretty soon you could string all my snippets together and have the book. Anyway, don’t forget to check out all the other snippets this weekend – and for all the other weekends – on Facebook.

…..

Jack pulled back to leave a space and rolled Alec into it so he could see his face. Alec tried to turn away, not wanting Jack to see his red eyes and snot and self-pity but Jack took hold of his chin and gently pulled him around. He looked at Alec for a long moment before bending and placing a chaste kiss on his lips.

As Jack pulled up, he looked deep into Alec’s eyes and said, “It appears you’ve been forgiven.”

Jack quickly swooped down to kiss him again, harder, deeper this time, as Alec’s face started to crumple under the weight of the heavy sobs of relief coming out of him.

The next morning Alec reached out for Jack but found only empty space in the bed next to him.

    Awww…. that was sweet — until that last line. I hope Jason is just making him breakfast in bed.

      Thank you! I’m glad you liked : ) I’m actually trying really hard to find the owner of the original pic to get permission to use it as the cover…eventually. No luck so far so…*fingerscrossed* x

      *mops your brow* It’s only a tiny cliffhanger. Would it be giving too much away to say how much I adore a happy ending? : ) x

    Oh, no, no you can’t stop there! Well, of course you can 😉 But you surely left us hanging, you tease!
