Why does the week after a long weekend feel so blasted long? It’s not fair.
Anyway, last week I introduced you to two of my new-ish characters, Eric and Nathan, of the ORCoast story. Nathan muddied the waters a bit when he called Eric darling, so (despite how I love muddying the waters in general) this week’s snippet should clear things up.
The guys have just hired a handyman to help them fix up the camp, and he’s tall, dark, and handsome—of course! More on the handyman later (promise). For now, here’s the important bit. Handyman just went into the kitchen, and—
Nathan glided out shortly thereafter, like it was scripted; he leaned close and whispered in Eric’s ear. “Oh, em, gee, he can handyman me anytime.”
“Handyman isn’t a verb, Nathan.”
“It is in his case.” Nathan made a growling noise and winked. “But you saw him first, so hands-off.”
“I didn’t say—”
“You never say, so I’m saying it for you.”
Thanks for reading!
One more thing, then I’ll let you get on to more snippets!
If you’re reading this on 12/06 or 12/07, there’s still time to grab my short story “Comfort” at ARe while it’s free. It’s a second edition, originally published in December of 2012. You can check it out here.
Okay, that’s all for me–see you in the comments!
