Rainbow Snippets – 24.04.16

Sunday, Maybe Monday

Rainbow Snippet time! 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.

More from the WIP. Time is passing, and the boys are starting to figure each other out.


“Tell me how you hurt your hand again?” Jordan gave him a sly smile, and raised his eyebrows at the mark on the wall.

“Arm wrestling Karen.” When Jordan had asked him back at the hospital why his hand was strapped, Adam had come up with some other bullshit excuse. He hoped this one would get a smile, which it did. “Hey, she’s stronger than she looks.”

Jordan huffed out a laugh, and started to awkwardly scoot back on the bed, his eyes flitting around the room at the entirety of his life piled in black garbage bags.

    Poor Adam. I hope he’ll trust Jordan with the truth.

    Love the quiet tension in this scene.

    I think the two of them need to trust each other enough to communicate. I love this scene, though — there is so much going on. Write faster so I can read the whole thing.

    A light-hearted, sweet exchange for something painfully serious. I can’t help feeling a little twinge at that last sentence.

    I like his flip answer to what is probably a really tense situation.

    I’m guessing maybe it wasn’t arm wrestling.

    It sounds like they both need to trust each other with some things before they can move forward.

    Jordan sounds like he’s ready to listen…
