Rainbow Snippets August 19 to 20

Saturday, again…yeah!

I’m heading out to an Earth, Wind & Fire concert in a couple of hours…it’s currently in the 90s, so I’ll be wearing a hat, at least (and dressed otherwise for heat).

Continuing from last week’s excerpt re: “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press. (Joey in the first person). It’s a few sentences longer than six, for context. (Forgive me.) 🙂

“I’m simply trying to find a way to start again…a new normal, as it were,” I said, “since I will never be a soldier again, though
it was all I ever wanted.” The admission of that truth still hurt, even now.

Bear studied me for a few seconds, and I did my best not to fidget. “The job is menial in the extreme, as you’ll be shoveling shit,
cleaning up after horses, pigs and cows, helping with the planting and the harvest, you name it. If we need a hole dug, a fence fixed, or an extra hand in the kitchen, you’re it. It’s back-breaking work most days, and it’s twelve hours a day, sometimes more. Think you can handle that, Mr. Choi?”

Hard, mindless work was the best medicine for me right now. “Yes, sir.”

“Good. You’re hired.”

Hello, all! How is your day going? I just finished watching Horatio Hornblower – loved it. 🙂

Continuing from last week’s excerpt re: “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press. (Joey in the first person)

Bear cleared his throat and tucked a lock of hair behind an ear. “From your application, it says you were in the army for a long
time, but you haven’t worked since you left. Care to tell me why?”

Well, it would have come out at some point anyway, right? “I had some difficulty dealing with a variety of things as a result
of experiences I had while overseas.”

That was vague enough, wasn’t it?

Rainbow Snippets August 5 to 6

Hiya! It’s a lovely Saturday here in Atlanta, not too hot, and cloudy.

I had a great time last weekend at the concert my hubby and I attended. Still recovering seven days later. I suppose that’s what happens as you get older? Oh well, worth it!

Below follows last week’s excerpt from “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press. Enjoy. 🙂

When his eyes finally met mine, I froze. Jesus, the man was gorgeous, all hard lines, chiseled jaw, steel blue eyes and wavy black hair. Strangely enough, he’d frozen, too, though he recovered much more quickly than I did. I reminded myself that I was here for a job, not to fuck my potential boss.

My dick said, “what a pity.” I ignored it.

Welcome back, folks! 🙂 I will be going to a Cheap Trick/Foreigner concert this afternoon, so I’ve got to prepare (T-shirt: check. Skirt: check. Hat: check. Ice: You betcha!)

We continue where we left off last week with “Truck Me Back to Normal” published by MLR Press. Enjoy. 🙂

It had been a long time since I’d felt any kind of interest in another human being, the issues I’d been dealing with leaving my
dick pretty much dead to the world. It was surprising to…feel again. And scary. I wasn’t ready.

“My apologies, Mr. Choi,” Bear said and I reined in my wayward musings.

“Not a problem, sir.”

Another hot Saturday! Ice is in my future. 🙂

Below is a snippet that follows last week’s quote from “Truck Me Back to Normal” published by MLR Press.

 

I remained at the door, waiting to be told what to do next. It was like being in the army. I almost stood at parade
rest, out of old habits.

“Please, have a seat,” Bear said, and I thanked him quietly before sitting in the only other chair in the room.

I watched as he scribbled. The foreman seemed to be very intent and deliberate, and he wasn’t bad looking either, if you went for massively-built, hairy men with a no-bullshit aura around them.

Hi, all! I hope you’re relaxing and having fun this weekend. 🙂

Below is a snippet from “Truck Me Back to Normal” published by MLR Press. Joey (first person) is about to start an interview and he is mentally…distracted.

When I entered the room, I closed the door behind me and turned to face my potential employer. He was the biggest man I’d ever seen. No wonder he was called Bear.

“Joseph Choi?” the foreman asked from where he sat behind a desk on which everything was stacked in neat piles. He didn’t look up, but focused on what he was doing, his pen busily going back and forth on the sheet before him.

He reminded me a little of a few of my former commanding officers in the way he held himself. Rigid. Stern. Yummy. Now where did that thought come from?
