Rainbow Snippets October 28

Hello again! It’s been a while. I’ve returned to WordPress as my website host and to mark the occasion I’m participating in Rainbow Snippets.

My serialized novel, Fidele, is still ongoing. (The link goes to the index page for the story so far.) This snippet is from the latest update, chapter 27, The Empty House.

“Malcolm,” he said hesitantly, “I … lured you here under false pretenses.”

To be honest, I had suspected as much from the moment he parked the Jaguar. “Oh?” I said in my most innocent, trusting tone.

“My previous tenant moved out last week,” he said, “and my new tenant doesn’t move in until the first of February. There aren’t any repairs that need to be done — just a few things cleaned here and there, or washed and put away, at most. I brought you here so … we could be alone.”

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation.

    Perhaps the ruse will be successful. It’s taking a chance, that’s for certain.
