#RAINBOWSNIPPETS *~* JULY 9-10, 2016 *~*

Today’s snippet comes from the opening scene in my current #WIP, which is a sequel of sorts to my free read, The Glass Ornament. In this new short story, we will meet Daniel and Ford almost three years later.

I haven’t re-introduced Ford yet. This exchange is between Daniel and his shipmate, MR2 Donahue. Enjoy!

He shook his head in disbelief and continued working on the engraving. Donahue might be a man, but Daniel had standards too.

“Come on. I’m ready to get lei’d. Get it? Lei’d, like laid.”

“You know, if you have to explain it isn’t funny,” he said, smirking at his friend’s antics. Donahue had given him the shop’s tour when Daniel arrived at the USS Natividad and hadn’t flinched when he mentioned being married to a man. That, right there, had cemented their friendship.

Rainbow SnippetsRainbow 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.
