Rainbow Snippets for July 30, 2022.
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/?multi_permalinks=7692389787497683¬if_id=1659146476310253¬if_t=group_activity&ref=notif
This one is from my literally latest story for my weekly flash fiction posts https://authorjeffbaker.com/2022/07/30/but-not-a-drop-to-drink-friday-flash-fics-at-demeters-bar-by-jeff-baker-july-30-2022-saturday-but/ and is pretty much hot off the presses. Appropriate as it deals with heat and water Here, from the opening, a bunch of guys talking at the bar, trying to keep cool..
“Welcome to the drought,” Zack said.
“Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.”
We sipped in silence for a few moments. Then, somebody broke the silence. It was an older man in a grey suit and a loosened tie.
“You know, a long time ago I knew a way of extracting water from the ground,” the man said.
Okay, that’s it for this go round. See you next week! —–jeff
