Unwilling to Be Yours

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets! Every Saturday, six sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction is posted and shared. It can be your own. It can be someone else’s. It just needs to be LGBTQ+ fiction.

To read a wide variety of samples from such stories, go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets/?ref=group_header

Peter picks right where he left off on Wednesday in Unwilling to Be Yours, my second prelude to Tales of the Navel/The Shadow Forest.

He’s just met Gabrielle, pausing in mid flirt to gawk at the attire of the Navel’s proprietor. ‘Brie was loving every minute of it (she prides herself on her oddball fashion sense), when she noticed her son skulking in the background.

This is seven sentences, not six, so bear with me. They’re short sentences. I was tempted to add a little more, but I managed to restrain myself.

Gabrielle looked up. Her smile vanished.

“Christopher!” A worried wrinkle popped out in the center of her forehead. “Stop skulking and come introduce yourself!”

  1. Christopher: I was *not* skulking. I was simply being quiet, letting you do the talking.

    Gabrielle: You were skulking. When are you going to stop moping over Damian being gone?

    Christopher: Never?

    Determination is a good thing in a character. He’s sticking to his goal of waiting for Damian, ‘Brie.

    Gabrielle: (turning on me) This is all your fault, you know. You’re writing him this way.

    Well, yes. When in doubt, blame the writer. 🙂

  2. Characters always blame their creator for any and all of their own faults. “You made me this way!”

    “No. I made you the way you told me you were…which makes you interesting.

    1. Actually, ‘Brie is very fond of nonsense. It’s brooding and misery she can’t handle. (wry grin) Hmm, I think you just gave me a background story prompt nudge to explain this a bit. Thank you. (bows)
