Rainbow Snippets: Brent & Graham from Wild & Precious
Happy Sunday, Snippeteers! I’m finally back to play! For those of you who don’t yet know about Rainbow Snippets, go visit the group on Facebook for great six-sentence snippets from LGBTQ authors and bloggers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets/.
Here’s the first time Brent and his boss Graham have lunch together when they run into each other outside the office:
“If only my dates could be like this,” Brent said, after another bout of laughter between them, then widened his eyes. “Oh, wow, man, that sounded dumb.”
Graham didn’t seem fazed. “They’re not? But why? You’re so fun to talk to. Any woman would be nuts not to appreciate you.”
“Uh, well, tell them that. But I guess I don’t really appreciate them either. I don’t know, it’s like, awkward and boring most of the time. Whatever. Ari keeps trying to set me up, but…. Anyway, how did this get into talking about my love life, or lack thereof?”
Graham regarded him, warmth in his eyes, and said softly, “You’ll find it, Brent. Everyone deserves to have love in their life. You’re young. You’ll find it.”
Oh, yes you will, Brent, and with the man of your dreams! [no spoilers]
