A Rainbow Snippet for April 28th and 29th


This weekend, my contribution to RainbowSnippets is all about angst. For some reason, I tend to torment these characters. I hope you enjoy this descriptive scene.

Story:

He looked toward the window. His lips formed a deep pink slash, almost like a healing knife wound. Would he, or we, ever get a chance to heal?


“Look at me, Nicky.”

Hollow eyes turned to me, bottomless irises and pupils flattening, becoming duller than a mud hole. I couldn’t understand how his mood shifted so fast even with my idiotic reminder of a painful incident.

Have you ever said the exact worst possible thing and hurt the one you love most? I hope you worked it out as these two manage to do.

Hope you enjoyed this and will check out what other authors have shared this weekend. Be well!

  3. Oh, I sure have :-(

    I like tormenting some of my characters. One of the perks of being a writer.

    1. Hahahaha... So true. I'm sorry you've experienced this. I have, as well, with actions even worse in one circumstance. Fortunately, I got the opportunity to apologize decades later. Funny how he stopped communicating after asking for a picture of me. I like to think his wife put an end to our communications. ~evil grin~ Be well!

  5. Such a seductive, yet menacing moment! I can see why you like making these characters suffer...it's quite intense! :)

    In answer to your question, all too often. (wry grin) It's one of my constant fears.

  8. Cannot even count the number of times I have said exactly the wrong thing and then tried to back-pedal and fix it. You said so much in just a few sentences. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  9. I think everyone has done something similar at some point, especially when they suffer from chronic "foot in mouth syndrome" like I do.

    This is a very atmospheric and emotionally charged snippet and as someone who loves to torture and to read about tortured characters I'm definitely hooked.

  12. I like the pain inherent in the description. And the fact that - at least - Nicky is aware of the misstep.
