Hello, snippeteers. Welcome back to rainbow snippets (6 sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction) and sexy snippets (7 sentences from their work-in-progress or published stories).
For those new to this story, here's a recap. Alexei and Zakhar were old friends until Zakhar went away ten years ago. Now he's back but not exactly getting a warm welcome from Alexei.
You can catch up with the story from the opening scene.
This follows on from Snippet 4 and we're still in Zakhar's POV.
His wide shoulders rose and fell with an indifference that didn't quite match the dark flare of his eyes. “Go ahead. Tell me why you've crawled out of your cave.”
The corner of my left eye twitched, a sure sign that his biting tone got to me.
“Not in front of them.” I tilted my head to indicate the three heavies standing in the office—two behind Alexei and one behind me.
“Then you can get out.” He returned his attention to the laptop screen, instantly dismissing me.
