It’s Rainbow Snippets time again. If you’re new to the snips circuit or have found me by accident…Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group where GLTBQ writers post snippets of their work every Saturday. There are snips from every genre, kind of pairing and heat level from sweet to steamy. And it’s a great way to find something new to read.

Hello, snippeteers! How have you all been? I’m soooo far behind, I’m still reading last week’s snips. /red face/ It’s been a truly crazy week for me. Good news, bad news, long hours, migraine… and then 3.5k in an evening, when I really should have been doing other things. But… we ended the week with a happy client and have finally arrived at Saturday, where I’ll get to enjoy a lovely dinner and an Agatha Christie play. And as if that wasn’t reward enough, I have a Sunday of reading and writing to look forward to, along with just a few household chores 😉
Before I run off and try to watch the whodunnit, have a little bit of Jack & Gareth. We left the two in the Ice Hotel, admiring the ice sculptures decorating their room, and Jack acting like a true fanboy. Until he spots a sculpture that’s been placed just a little out of the way….

“What the fuck?” Jack’s voice quavered with a quiet kind of horror that made the hair on Gareth’s neck stand straight up.
“What is it?”
“I hate this. I…fucking…hate this.” Jack sounded wrecked.
“Why can’t I ever do anything like a normal person? I take you out for lunch and end up going undercover. I try and spend a quiet weekend with you somewhere nice and just. Fucking. Look!”

Jack is twelve and has just escaped from the pimp his mother sold him to. He’s trying to survive on the Clapham streets. And he takes his courage in his hands and reaches back when a man who should be angry at him reaches out to him.
