Rainbow Snippet April 14th and 15th



This weekend’s RainbowSnippets installment features a character in the throes of a nightmare. I hope my words convey his despair and his partner’s helpless witness.

Story:

The bleating of a wounded lamb woke me. Bolting upright, I looked
to my side.

Nickolas continued to drowse. His eyelids twitched, hand clutching the sheet higher beneath his chin. His head jerked, a minute move sounding loud with all that hair sliding over the sheets. Taking a shallow breath, letting out a less pained bleat, he stilled.

    1. Neither. ~blush~ I'm not ready to share my series with the world yet. There are just so many mean souls out there. Thank you for not being one of them! And Happy Writing, my dear.

  9. Interesting. I wonder what he was dreaming (But of course my twisted brain heard Lector talking to Starling about the lambs...)
