This snippet is from “Better Than New,” my contribution to the Goodreads MM Romance Group’s Don’t Read in the Closet event of 2014, Love’s Landscapes.
Theo is the “I.”
“Say, Red. What’s up with your leg?” The guy was in my math class. Bone-head geometry. If I was any good an angles and trajectories, a lot more than my class schedule would be different.
“Surfing accident. A shark bit off my foot.”
He looked me up and down, no doubt noting my pale and bony qualities, none of which screamed surfer dude.
“No. Someone pushed me off a MAX platform and the train rolled over my leg.”
He shot me a strange look and then ducked into the building faster than I could’ve kept up. Not that I wanted to.
Thanks for reading!
