Brief story info:
No Filter is a crossover novella of the Hiding Behind The Couch and Checking Him Out series(es), featuring Libby (and others) from HBTC, and Matty (and others) from CHO.
This week’s snippet comes a few paragraphs after last week’s, where Matty had typed an email to Libby (whom he met in Hiding Out) and is waiting for Noah (his other half) to proofread it before he sends it.
WIPpet maths for 8th March:
8 question marks. I know, it’s pants, but my brain refuses to cooperate further.
And the WIPpet Snippet:
“Yeah, it’s [Matty’s email] OK,” Noah said, nodding and still looking at the screen. “Who’s Libby?”
Matty stopped mid-stretch, with his left foot behind his head. “You’re kidding me.”
Noah peered up through his eyebrows. “Nope. Oh, wait, is she the girl who…came to…that show back…whenever?”
Matty unhooked his foot and let it drop heavily to the floor. He marched over to the bed and snatched his phone back. “You ain’t actually got a clue, have you?”
For what it was worth, Noah grimaced guiltily. “No, sorry.”
“D’you remember my Starlight dance?”
The grimace flipped into a grin. “Yep. Not exactly gonna forget it, am I?”
“Oh, yeah? Well, while you’re all ‘I’m so special he created a dance for me’, can you remember how you found out?”
“Lauren told me.”
“She did,” Noah argued. “In the interval. I was outside, looking for you, and…” His words trailed off. “Lauren didn’t tell me.”
“I was sure…it was…” Noah rubbed his hair—or the black hair-shaped shadow—with his palm. It made a sound like a tiny saw. He looked totally bamboozled. “Jeez. Where the hell was my head at?”
“Up your arse,” Matty said, matter-of-fact, even though thinking back to their ‘break’ could still knock him sideways.
