Rainbow Snippets 03/04


Hello, Snippeteers. This lovely photo is courtesy of my sister-in-law who lives in Shetland. This is her neighbour’s cottage with a double rainbow, one of which is going directly down their chimney. They’re still looking for the pot of gold, however. I wonder if the Trows took it.

My snippet today does not involve rainbows, cottages, or Trows. It involves my current WIP, and Head Teacher, Jules, making a hash of trying to show concern for his newest member of staff, Tristan.

I know it is a mistake to mention Danny, as soon as the words leave my mouth. At the mention of his husband, Tristan’s eyes widen. He swallows hard, his skin turning even paler than it already was. In one sentence I have reminded him he is all alone here, and why. I feel awful. What kind of a person am I to be deliberately upsetting my staff by dredging up such painful memories?

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).

To see what others are sharing this week click here and find the pinned post at the top of the group page.

Love inside the Rainbow
