Rainbow Snippets 2/5/2023
This week my snippet is from A Barlow Lens (book 2 of Circles).
Tom pocketed the key, put a few more bills on the bar than was necessary for the drinks, and picked the two glasses up in one hand. The plate of sandwiches he held with the other. He carried them to the table and set the plate down.
“Mind if I join you?” Tom held up the drinks. “I thought you might like another one. And dinner.”
The man stood up; he was several inches taller than Tom’s slight, just-over-six-foot frame. He held out one of those large, delicious hands and said, “Philip.”
Tom shook the offered hand, liking its warm, strong feeling. No calluses, just a slight roughness to his skin. “Tom.”
Philip looked down, scratched at the back of his head, and blushed. “I know.”
Tom slipped into the chair opposite Philip and pushed the plate between them. “Have you tried Billy’s sandwiches? It’s one thing I look forward to every time I come here.”
“You come here much?”
“Not as much as I’d like. But you know how it is, have to be careful. This sure isn’t New York or Paris.” Tom bit into his sandwich, then sipped his whiskey. “Woo…not smooth.”
Philip laughed. “No, it sure ain’t. But it does the job.” He picked up one of the sandwiches, took a bite, and chewed slowly. “You teach at that school up near West 140th.”
