Rainbow Snippet for September 1st and 2nd


Welcome to September! It’s time again for me and some very talented writers to share six sentences from an LGBT related piece. Please check out the Rainbow Snippets Facebook page where you can find all sorts of genres.

Mine, as usual, comes from my BloodMoon series of erotica. Here, young lovers are visiting the parents of one. The older couple ran their guests ragged in an effort to pack as much Greek culture and fancy socializing into the week as possible. Desperate for intimacy, the pair skipped out on yet another cocktail party the night before this scene.

Here we have an understanding mother addressing her son’s love interest. I hope you’ll find it amusing.

Snippet:

The very next afternoon Mrs. Gravan called me into the kitchen. She said she heard I made excellent tea, which I considered an absurd pretext even as I pondered why she could possibly want to get me alone. Clara did not leave me in suspense long.

“Of course, dear, I know why you two wanted to stay in last night and I’m sorry for our thoughtlessness. I remember young love, though we aren’t dead yet,” she added, winking, “though next time you might want to light some incense. Or maybe a lot, for that matter.”

Do you like using incense?

  1. I love understanding parents. Just saying. Incense used to be a favorite of mine back in the day, but I can't do much scents anymore. Makes my eyes water. Old age perhaps? I don't know.

    Have a fabulous day, Darla. ♥

    1. Sorry you can no longer enjoy fragrances like you did. I'm not always tolerant, myself. Be well!

    1. Hahahaha... Fortunately, the parents went out alone. Thank you for making me giggle.

  3. I used to. I don't like scents as much. Maybe like Sandee, it's age!
    How embarrassing for the boyfriend... shouldn't Mrs. Gravan be having that talk with her SON, and not his lover? I would have run to him and told him I never wanted to stay with his parents again! But, then again, with the "not dead yet" quip, maybe she's coming on to him!
    (Am I at the age of "dead yet," being as I don't understand about the encouragement of incense?)

    1. Thank you for the fun comment! She wanted to convey something more, and even more awkward. Heh... Be well, my dear!

  4. LOL, tha snip really did make me laugh out loud, and I'm partial to Dragon's Blood incense. It's heavy enough to cover up anything.

  5. LOL! What a fun snippet.

    I love incense. Night Queen, patchouli (depending on the blend), Nag Champa, and copal resin are favorites.

  8. We use incense regularly around here for ritual, for relaxation, and because we have five, yeah, five cats.... probably not in the context implied in this snippet though.

    1. Interesting. Thank you for sharing. I know a blogger with fifteen felines. Can you imagine feeding time? We feel like we might trip and bash in our brains with two cats dancing underfoot. Heh... Be well. I appreciate your visit.

  9. Ha, that's a bit awkward but certainly incense can cover a lot of things.

  11. I love incense although I haven't had any for quite a long time. I used to like sandalwood.

    1. Ooh, yum. That's a nice subtle one. I haven't found it at my local limited source. I'll have to shop around. Thanks for the comment!
