“Entr’acte” in Rainbow Snippets by Jeff Baker. May 21, 2022.

May 20, 2022

I managed to miss last week, but I’m back.

Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or a work of somebody else’s that has at least one LGBT character at Rainbow Snippets here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets

This week, I’m celebrating my sixth anniversary of posting at least one flash fiction story (usually on Friday Flash Fics’ picture prompt site) a week. Whew! I’ve posted the original picture above.

So here’s the very first: something called “Entr’acte.” I wasn’t sure what the guy was picking up off the floor…

“Excuse me,” Kent said, “I think you dropped these.”

“Oh, thanks,” Danny said. “Hey, you want one?”

“No thanks, I don’t smoke.”

“Good. I keep trying to quit, but, but…” Danny shook his head and held up the script.  “Look, are you people sure about this, I mean this dialogue is really lame.”

Okay, here’s a little more…

“Yeah,” Kent said. “We’re really going to talk like this?”

“Yes you are,” said the man behind the podium.

“And we fall in love?” Danny asked.

“Madly,” the man said.

Here’s a link to the original story which first appeared on Monday Flash Fics (Friday’s predecessor) in May of 2016: https://authorjeffbaker.com/2016/05/25/monday-flash-fiction-on-wednesday/

Take care!
