Welcome to everyone visiting via the TRS 10th Anniversary Party—I hope you have a good time here, and find a new author or two to enjoy on the hop.
This week I’m posting from Curious Sustenance, and continuing the theme of supporting characters. Next week is Bi Pride Week, so I chose a gal who doesn’t only play for one team, although you wouldn’t really know it from this bit. This snippet is near the beginning. The “he” is my MC, Ross, and he’s just been rescued from a bad break-up and an empty trophy house by his best friend and work-out buddy, Janet.
This has been through one edit, so I only recommend squinting one eye when you read it. 😉
When he returned to the living room, wearing low-tech blue sweats and an oversized UFC t-shirt, she greeted him with a big bowl of zero-point taco soup and a half-dozen things to top it with. He heaped his bowl with some of everything and wolfed it down while they decided which movie to watch.
Halfway through the latest Sandra Bullock flick, which on any other day he would’ve loved, Ross slid so his head rested on Janet’s shoulder. He whined when she rested her head against his.
“You’re very appealing. There’s nothing wrong with you, at any weight. You’re a sweet, gorgeous hunk of man and if you weren’t gay we’d be so naked right now. And I’ll keep telling you that until you believe it so don’t worry about arguing, okay?”
Thanks for reading!
