Welcome, Snippetters and other visitors!
My story is a serialized novel, Fidele. A haunted house is no place to fall in love…
We were standing close to each other at the bookcase. Even weary from the end of a long day after little sleep, Noel was a gorgeous creature, those intelligent eyes fixed on me, his jaw dark with his evening beard. His cologne — or so I assumed, because I could think of no other way he could have this scent — smelled of the ocean, salty and clean, and I longed to bury my face in the crook of his neck and breathe him in.
We both stepped back at the same time. “Supper will be ready soon,” he said and I said, “I have some reading I want to do,” and he left the schoolroom. I went to my own room and sat on the edge of the bed, and then lay on my back and allowed myself to daydream of holding that strong body, kissing those red lips, for exactly five minutes before it was time to go downstairs.
The story so far: Fidele. Updated every Friday.
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.
