Rainbow Snippets 27th February

This week I discovered Rainbow Snippets on facebook. A group where authors and bloggers post 6 sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction every week, and decided I’d join in the fun.

Here’s my contribution from my free story Lima Oscar Victor Echo and The Truth About Everything 🙂

***

“What’s his name?”

“Who?” He knew exactly who she meant, but he was buying himself some time.

He hadn’t meant to fall in love with Jamie, but trying not to fall in love was a little like trying to stay awake forever— sometimes your body took over, dragged you under, and you woke up with someone’s name carved on your heart like a secret you never wanted to know.

“Mr Guitarist Extraordinaire.”

Oscar looked at her blankly and Leah narrowed her eyes, proving she wasn’t all sunshine and rainbow hair— she could actually look pretty scary.

About sukifleet

Suki Fleet currently lives in the heart of England. Her childhood was quite unconventional and she spent some time living on a boat and travelling at sea with her family. Since she was very small she has always dreamed of writing for a living, but though she has written original fiction online for years and encouraged many new writers to keep going and follow their author dreams, it is only recently she got the courage to make her own dream a reality and actually send something off to a publisher. By day she runs her own business selling fabric (her second love) and juggling family commitments, by night she weaves the stories that the characters in her head dictate. These stories often start with pain or longing but always end with love.
