Hello Snippetteers! I hope everyone has had a pleasant week.
This week's snippet comes from Whiskey and Moonshine, a sweet, hot, feel good romance.
The older man near the head of the line was obviously listening in. He arched an eyebrow, then pinched the bridge of his nose between his thumb and forefinger and stared at his shoes. Colt wondered who he was and why he was here, then took a minute to study him further. Shoulder muscles bulged under his suit jacket, his waist was trim, and he had the stance of someone with confidence.
Bodyguard. It was the first word that came to mind. If he wasn’t, Colt reasoned, he was some sort of security. Just because Colt had never seen him around before meant nothing. It was logical to think Mr. Kensington would be attending the auditions, so some of his personal staff would be here too.
The line cleared of four more applicants. Liking the eccentric billionaire angle, Colt decided to use it in another capacity. “So how serious do you think they are about the fasting and the medical leeches for some kind of bleeding every month?”
A few more men left, grumbling under their breath. Bodyguard guy rolled his eyes and stared at the ceiling for a few seconds, shaking his head. Colt inched toward the next man but stopped in his tracks when the bodyguard turned and glared at him, then crooked his finger, indicating for Colt to approach him. Colt twisted and looked behind him, then pointed to his own chest and mouthed the word, “Me?”
The man nodded and stepped around the other applicants to Colt. “Come with me.” He took firm hold of Colt’s arm.
