I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far.
My current WIP has a working title now: “A Springful of Winters”
First the Blurb:
Kit is a bit socially awkward. In fact, the rules of social encounters are mostly a bit of a mystery to him but he gets by, with lots of lists and contingency plans. He doesn’t have any plans in place for when he first meets Stephan, however, and he keeps bumping into the man in the most embarrassing situations. The trouble is, Stephan keeps turning up in unexpected places, arising suspicion that this gorgeous man might just have some contingency plans of his own where Kit is concerned.
This week my snippet takes place after Kit has just properly met Stephan, the man he keeps bumping into. Stephan has asked him out on a date. Since Kit has difficulties understanding the rules about this sort of stuff he is discussing this with his friend, boss, landlady and mentor, Yenta, while they work together in their bookshop.
“I saw the way he smiled at you, Kit. As if you were the world to him.”
“As if I was the what? That’s just nonsense, Yenta. Almost as nonsense as some of the stories in these books.” I wave a hand in a wide arc to incorporate all of the romance section.
Yenta narrows her eyes and leans forward, poking a bony index finger at me. “Nonsense that I see you reading every day, so don’t pretend you don’t know anything about romance.”
“Doesn’t mean I understand it.” I mutter.
How can I be the world to him? The part of my brain that interprets everything literally wants to scream out that I look nothing like the world. The other part, the part that enjoys reading romance novels and dreaming of happy endings, wants to curl up in his lap and let him shower me with silly metaphors like that forever.
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!).
