Unwilling to Be Yours

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets! Every Saturday, six sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction are posted and shared. They can be your own. They can be someone else’s. All that’s required is that they be LGBTQ+.

Mine is a little longer than six sentences, forgive me. (apologetic bow) I’m already ending on an unanswered question or rather Christopher is. He, Peter, and Gabrielle are picking up right where they left off on Wednesday (QueerBlogWed) in Unwilling to Be Yours.

This is the second prelude to Stealing Myself From Shadows, my novel under revision. Stealing Myself From Shadows is the first book in my Tales of the Navel/The Shadow Forest series.

“Peter seems odd enough to fit in around here.” Gabrielle gave her son a sidelong look, while crossing her arms across her chest. “I’m willing to give him a chance.”

“I will do everything in my power to be worthy of that chance, even if I’m only here for a little while.” I bowed again, sneaking a glance at Christopher from my lowered vantage.

“Only a little while?” Christopher was suddenly much friendlier. “How long are you going to be here?”

  1. Peter: I’ve only got here. (dramatic sigh) You’re only too eager to get rid of me.

    Christopher: (looking directly at him) I’ve only just met you. Why should I wish to keep you?

    Peter: (another dramatic sigh) So young, so heartless!

    Christopher: (looking down and muttering to himself as much as to Peter) Sometimes I wish that were so.


  2. I think Peter is making it clear that he’s putting the ball in Christopher’s court. I have a feeling he’ll stick around as long as he’s welcome. Poor Christopher, my heart bled for him when Damien left. I hope Peter will be the salve for his soul

    1. Thank you. You don’t know how much it means to me that you felt for Christopher at that moment. (heart) Peter is only just meeting the Navel’s denizens, not really understanding it’s a graveyard of broken hearts. He’s figured out that Damian is the reason for Christopher’s grumpiness. He’s yet to guess how much lies beneath the sulks.
