Hi everyone, and happy Rainbow Snippet day!
Just to recap so far, Elijah has been dragged out by his friend Katie to audition as a fiddle player for an Irish band. He played a few tunes with Peter, the band’s flutist, and they played together like they’d been doing it for years. Peter was so excited he kissed Eli’s cheek and hugged him, and asked his band mates “Can we keep him?” This snip immediately follows that.
“He’s a little stiff,” Hitomi noted, but she was smiling, and I thought if Peter didn’t step back, I would be a little stiff. It had been a long time since I played music for an audience, and it had been a long time since I’d had another man’s arms around me. Approximately the exact same amount of time, actually.
“We can work on that,” Peter said, stepping back. He looked me up and down. “We’ll have to get you a costume, too. Unless you have something?”
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!). Visit the group for links to more snippets from LGBT works! While you’re over there, shoot me a friend request!
