My snippet this week comes from Scintilla!
“Thank you. I do aim to please.” Raul finished the massage then said, “You’re a scintilla.”
Brandon rolled over and eased to a sitting position, flinching. “Is it a problem I didn’t tell you?”
Raul shook his head. “Nah. I was surprised, but I’ll admit you’re one of the best clients I’ve had. That was different, surprising and…very enjoyable.”
Brandon smiled shyly. “Thanks. A lot of people are afraid to even hug me without wearing all sorts of rubber gear, let alone more. They think they’ll get electrocuted.”
Snagging bottles of water from a crate beside the bed, he handed one off to Brandon. Raul sensed that Brandon was a person who craved physical affection with an emotional connection. Having people think they needed to keep him at a distance must’ve been very painful for him.
“That’s sad. I might ask before swimming with you, but—” He had other questions, but didn’t think it was appropriate unless they’d be spending more time in bed together.
Brandon burst out laughing. He expression changed in a split second to one of horror when he glanced over Raul’s body.
“Holy crap, what happened to you?”
There are many more snippets in the Rainbow Snippet Facebook group.
