Last week I joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. According to their description, “it’s 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 of even 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).”
My snippet this week is from my short story Unconditionally. When we left Luca last week, he was upset because his mother had called him a freak on his wedding day. This is from the same scene, but not directly after.
He stared at himself in the mirror, watched as tears trickled down his face but made no attempt to brush them away. The indecision made his heart ache, and a distraught sob escaped him.
Before he could think, he walked over to the door, opened it, and started running.
He ran through the hallway, down the stairs, and out on the street. He hesitated a second outside the entrance. Then he turned right and ran, the beautiful veil sparkling and billowing behind him.
I’m getting super excited for the release. Less than two weeks to go!!
