Every week we post six lines of a story of ours, a work-in-progress or from someone else’s work we recommend that has LGBT characters on Rainbow Snippets here https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets
We re-visit my happily-ensconced Private Eyes, Josh and Adam in an oddball case inspired by an oddball prompt picture; “The Adventure of the Saint Patrick’s Day Chicken.” https://authorjeffbaker.com/2023/03/17/the-saint-patricks-day-chicken-soars-for-friday-flash-fics-march-17-2023-by-jeff-baker/
We had the case wrapped up by noon, we had to.
Josh and I had been hired to find some missing jewelry, gems that hadn’t even been reported stolen yet, the owner felt he was to embarrassed to do what he should have done and called the police.
Early Breakfast usually had more customers in the morning but that was the morning of the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade downtown. I had said something about the big rooster on top of the building being the Saint Patrick’s Day Chicken and Josh grumbled something about sticking to business.
In this case, “business” meant sipping coffee at a back corner table and keeping track of everyone in the restaurant. Including the owner.
That’s it for this week! Join us next time for an encounter in a motel. —-jeff
Such a fun snippet!
Intriguing setup! ❤️
Heh, this sounds a lot more stressful than at first it seemed. At least there’s coffee.
Yeah! Sitting around waiting! I have no patience! LOL!
