Rainbow Snippet November 19

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!).

In this group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

I would invite everyone to please come check out the Rainbow Snippets group, click on a link, read and comment on the writing available and get involved yourselves in this awesome exercise. The link to the group can be found HERE

Today's Snippet is from my NaNo project, which was finishing up my freebie friday story ....and all shall fade to black. Anyone wishing to read pieces of it can find them on my blog. This comes almost immediately after the first kiss between the main characters. I've verified in at over 50,000 words at this point, so the story is well on its way to finally beiing done. 

“Oh yeah, my friend, it’s zombie kill night.”

“In that case lead the way, I need to shoot shit tonight.”

“Yeah? Why?”

“’Cause it’ll take my mind off how bad I wanna beat on the door ‘till he answers, then kiss him senseless.”

Max laughed as they headed down the stairs.

“You my friend, have issues, don’t let this turn into another Shiro.”

Jax stumbled, nearly tumbling down the last few steps. His hand gripped the railing while his heart thundered in his chest.

“What do you mean, turn into another Shiro, there was never anything between Shiro and I but friendship.”
