An inviting little snippet…

Gold gay sex symbol linked with rainbow heart.Happy Caturday!

I hope you had a fabulous week. I love summertime in the Pacific Northwest—we had a little rain, a little sunshine, and it hasn’t been over 80 degrees once. 🙂 It won’t last, but that’s okay too.

Last week’s snippet was pretty intense, so I thought I’d lighten things up a little this week. A few hours after Phil cut his hang-out time with Lee short, he goes out into the backyard and sees a sheet of paper flapping in the breeze. Technically, this is only 8 sentences because there’s no period after Lee signed his name…


Hey Phil,

Thanks for letting me see your pictures. You’re an amazing photographer.

My band’s playing Sunday night. It’s not as amazing as pictures of a hummingbird using spiderwebs to build a nest, but I hope you’ll come to Backspace around 8 anyway. I’ll leave your name at the door so you won’t have a cover.

See you!

Lee Redding

Phil tried to remember if Lee said what kind of band he played in, but he’d been too distracted by the way his T-shirt stretched across his shoulders and the skin peeking through holes in the knees of his jeans.


Thanks for reading!

  1. Oh, bless Lee for trying again! I hope Phil can cope with going…

    Charley, you have to stop creating people so real that I worry about all week until the next snippet—or write ’em faster. 😉
