Rainbow Snippets, June 24, 2022. “Dance of the Hours” by Jeff Baker.

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

This week, a taste of October. I wrote this with Halloween in mind and posted it as one of my weekly flash fictions from a picture prompt (which is at the top of all this.) and posted on my blog in November 2016. Here’s the link:https://authorjeffbaker.com/2016/11/06/dance-of-the-hours-monday-flash-fics/

“Look! There they are!”

“Which one’s yours?”

“That one. The grey one with the creases.”

“Eeeeew! That tie!”

“Yeah. Birthday present. Any of those your clothes?”

Okay, here’s a little more.

“What did you do, anyway?”

“Same thing you did, told the old lady she was too old for trick-or-treating.”

“I told her she was pretty convincing as a witch but that we didn’t have any candy. Then, when I tried to get dressed for work this morning, my clothes just danced away!”

“Same here, I didn’t think she was a real witch!”

“Me either.”

Okay, the next lines are just too good not to post!

“ Hey, there’s my bathrobe!”

“Yeah, it’s dancing with my swimming trunks. I tried putting them on when my other clothes danced away.”

“Just glad nobody can see us back here.”

“Especially with that tan line, eeeeew!”

Okay, those snippets stretched the six lines a bit but they were fun! Hope everyone has a better week1

  1. That’s what you get for telling anyone they’re too old to go trick or treating, lol! Great snippets!
