Are you going crazy yet? What day of isolation and social distancing are you on? For me it’s the end of my first week of working from home since 2016 and it was a light load, so I got a lot of house things done 🙂 My kitty loved the company too.
What do you think the world, the market, and people in general will be like once this is all over?
Good news…I’ve started on my end of edits on Upstaged 5 🙂
What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.
This week I’m sticking with one of my older works again which was formerly “Refugees” but was re-named “This Time Around”. Skipping a few non-essential lines to get to the crux of the tale.

Can two lonely souls finally get a second chance on getting it right?
Robert can’t believe this has happened again. His heart is in tatters, all because of his once-again ex. Out of pure frustration, he takes matters into his own hands and gives boxing a try. All he gains is an injured hand, which needs the attention of a physical therapist.
David is overwhelmed and his heart is in denial over the sudden departure of the man he was in love with. As he tries to piece his life back together, a patient needing therapy walks into his clinic and the attraction is immediate; but the desire is not.
Can these two finally find a good relationship that will last and work this time around?
“Naw, you love it too much. You liked working at that modeling shoot well enough. That is, until you met Andrew there.” Why’d he mention his name? David shook his head. “It started out well for one night. How quickly things fell apart from there, didn’t they? I had no clue what I was walking into.”
Four days later, their appointment arrived. Robert had to wait this time; there was another patient saying goodbye. She was a young girl of maybe sixteen. She walked past him in the lobby and smiled at him.
David finally acknowledged his favorite patient and they walked to an exam table. “Hey, how are you tonight?”
“I’m good, thanks. Um, full disclosure, I wanted to apologize, I don’t want to pry. Your life is your business.”
I wish I could just tell him. “Stop, it’s my fault for being approachable as a snake. I’m sorry too. I thought about you over the weekend and about my situation and how it’s affected me. I get a lot of thinking time, being alone again.” God, he was lonesome.
David’s about to burst…I think they both are.
