Reunions - Kris and Ade do Christmas #RainbowSnippets #LGBTQ

It’s the first day of my Christmas holiday. Hurray! I’m cracking on with Reunions…soon. I haven’t written any more of it yet. But I have marzipanned (yes, it is a verb, for sure) the cake (that I definitely didn’t buy pre-made). We’ve got a tree and lights and everything, so it’s all going according to plan. Mostly. Sort of. OK, there is no plan.

Anyway…

Rainbow Snippet time.

Snippet context: It’s Christmas morning. That’s all you need to know. :) 

Here’s the snippet:
“Good morning, Mr. Johansson,” Ade sang—actually sang—holding the ‘-son’ for a count of four as the curtains swished open on a still-dark world. The bedside lamps came on, first one, then the other, and Ade clambered back into bed.

“Good morning, Mr. Simmons.” Kris fought a smile, endeavouring to hide his amusement and surprise. Ade was not a morning person. “It’s—” Kris lifted his head and squinted at the clock “—five-thirty? That’s early even for me.”

“All the more day to do Christmas with,” Ade said, his tone decidedly sultry as his hand slid under the duvet.

Rainbow 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 (no spoilers please!).

In this group you'll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story's main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

  1. Hm... I don't think it's Christmas that Ade is planning to "do" at the moment.
