Is it Rainbow Snippet time already? This week has flown by.
We marked a milestone in our family this week. We became the proud parents of a teenager. We’ve been proud parents throughout, but now we start the teen years and we also discovered one of the reasons teenagers sleep so much. Teenage child grew an inch in two weeks. If you listen carefully you can hear the creaking of teenage bones as they stretch.
Rainbow Snippets is a place to share up to six sentences with an LGBTQ+ theme. Here are my six, with a rainbow theme this week. It’s from my WIP with the working title “Genie”. I suppose the clue to the subject is in the title. Tobrin is a genie, and Jayce, his somewhat reluctant and often bemused owner.
“I was just wondering how much taller your ugly friend expected you to be.” Tobrin mused, his smirk impish. “Since you’re already tall enough to have your own weather system.”
Jayce snorted, then nudged Tobrin. “Go, quick, before Jag returns and sees you here.” He glanced down at Tobrin’s bright clothes, which were, as ever, an assault on the senses. “You look like a rainbow had a fight with a carnival.”
Tobrin gasped, looking down at his clothes then glaring at him before vanishing as abruptly as he’d appeared. “There’s no need to be rude.”
