This week I’m returning to my WIP, Side Effects. (If you’d like to catch up, click here.)
Our narrator, Max, and his psychology lab partner, Damien, have taken a dinner break during which Damien has dropped a small bomb on unsuspecting Max:
“I’m gay,” Damien told his plate, “but I don’t know if I should be telling you–I don’t want to make you uncomfortable.”
Feigning nonchalance I definitely didn’t feel, I picked up a French fry and dragged it through my ketchup. “Noah’s my best friend; so why should your being gay make me uncomfortable?”
“Max,” Damien looked up to meet my gaze, “I’m betting that Noah doesn’t dream about you.”
The French fry landed in my lap.
“M … me?”
Thanks for stopping to read! Be sure to check out more of the Sixers here.
‘Til next time!
I believe he’s a bit shocked! Can’t wait to read more next week!
Thanks for stopping, Amy!
Okay, my mind went straight to where that fry landed. This was a terrific scene–awkward, hopeful, and sexy all at once. Well done!
Silver, thanks for reading!
Damian must be pretty sure of his ground to make an admission like that. Glad to get a bit more of their story. 🙂
Thanks for stopping, Elin! There’s more to come …
Great job. Check out mines I’d love your input.
Thanks, Sonia! I’m a little behind making my rounds, but I’ll get there! 😉
I love it! Can’t wait to see what happens next.
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, Dani-Lyn!
