Rainbow Snippets with “Atmosphere.” February 19, 2022 from Jeff Baker.

Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or published, or a recommendation of someone else’s work with at least one LGBT character. Posted at Rainbow Snippets here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/963484217054974

These snippets are from another of my weekly flash fictions, called “Atmosphere.” (Here’s the link to the full story: https://authorjeffbaker.com/2016/08/28/monday-flash-fic-for-august-29-2016-atmosphere/) Bryan and Nico are happily making out on a blanket outdoors in the evening when suddenly Nico realizes he has no idea how he got there…

Here’s snippet one:

“Programming,” Bryan said. “They hooked you up to an, an encephalic mind thingie. Programmed you,” he said flatly. “Me too. We’re supposed to believe that this is really us, that this is how we really feel. It’s the programming, we were programmed to fall in love and get romantic and physical and, and, oh, God you have nice legs!”

Here’s snippet two:

“Programming,” Nico said as he rubbed Bryan’s chest. “Like robots? Oh, God, we’re not robots are we?”

“No,” Bryan said, in between kisses. “We’re not robots.” After a few more minutes of kissing, Nico pulled away and stared up at the sky.

That’s it for this week. I wrote a sequel which is in the link to the original story. Maybe some day I’ll turn this one into something full-length. ‘Till then, take care and stay warm! ——jeff

    Intriguing. Are they real or just programs?

    I’m getting Philip K. Dick vibes…

    That is vaguely horrific. Is all this hooked up to actual people?
