Waiting for Rebirth

It’s Rainbow Snippets’s time! Every Saturday, six sentences of GLBT fiction are posted and shared. It can be your own. It can be someone else’s. It just needs to be GLBT.

To read a wide variety of samples of GLBT stories, go here https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets/

I’ll be posting a fragment of ‘Be My Valentine…Snack’ on Valentine’s Day.
