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. They just need to be LGBTQ+.

To read a wide variety of samples from LGBTQ+ fiction, go to


Peter picks off where he left off Wednesday in Unwilling to Be Yours. He’s found a place to drop off ‘Waiting for Rebirth’. Only is the gazebo truly his choice? Or is someone else guiding him?

This is a little longer than six sentences, forgive me. (bows)


I set down the painting on the ground, half expecting someone to grab me from behind.

No one did. I opened the gate, my hands trembing with relief.

I flexed my fingers and took a deep breath, before I picked up ‘Waiting for Rebirth’.

The icky sensation was gone. I could lift the canvas with ease, delightful ease.

What had happened? What had changed about this painting when I left the Navel and drew closer to the garden?
