I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week! May’s underway, my to-do list is long and I’m still struggling to get a significant number of words down every day. Right now, the Muse dribbles when I’d love her to gush… but looking at my notes, I had the same problem last year after Job Hunt came out. Promo work seems to gag the Muse…
Nevermind. Even the dribbles will add up in the end and for today’s edition of Rainbow Snippets we’re back with Nam Ryuu, aka rock star Tempest. He’s in hospital recovering from being drugged by Franklin when the police arrest Max. For assault, maybe? Ryuu is pleased when Min, Max Young’s snarky second-in-command, arrives to take over, but he’d much rather Max was still with him.
Min came through the door like an angry battering ram and Ryuu slid from the bed where he’d been curled ever since four armed police officers had taken Max away. Ryuu had no idea why it had affected him so much to see Max in handcuffs, he only knew it had. Almost as much as Max’s instructions to keep quiet, pretend to be weaker than he was, and go with no one but Min, that Max had breathed in his ear before the handcuffs clicked shut around his wrists and he was led from the room.
Ryuu was sure that tiny, metallic snick would haunt his dreams for weeks to come and Skylar seemed to understand without Ryuu having to explain. He hadn’t moved from the star’s side since Max had been taken, not even when he’d called his boss, Aidan, for help.
“Have you seen Max? Is he okay?” Ryuu asked eagerly as soon as the door closed behind Min.
