Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, bloggers, and readers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!). Check out all the other awesome snippets by clicking on the picture above.
Picking up from last week’s snippet from a neglected WiP. It’s unedited, so in the words of our fearless leader, “Squint.”
“This is it,” he said, trying to keep the doubt out of his voice. “Come on, Tommy.”
The door was locked, but there was a sign that read, “If you are in need of shelter, ring the bell.”
Alex gave Tommy’s hand a squeeze and pushed the button; after what seemed an eternity the door opened and a middle aged man stared at them, his eyes cold.
“Please, sir. We need a place to be out of the weather for the night. The bouncer at Harley’s sent us here.”
The man nodded, his lips pursing. “He called and told me.” His voice was colder than the wind that gusted pellets of ice against them. “Your kind isn’t welcome here.”
