Bruce and Jeffrey meet

This week’s snippet is from The Ancient–in which Bruce runs into Jeffrey for the first time–literally–


“Are you all right?” the man says, wearing a tremulous, worried smile.

Bruce nods, silent, looking again at his tall lean frame, his wiry ginger hair, the soft brown eyes.  Bruce can see his soul through those eyes, and it’s beautiful, too. He has a genuine smile, even a little gold bead in his left earlobe.  He’s afraid to speak, but he forces himself.

“Yeah, I’m–I’m fine.”

Looking relieved, the student picks up the armful of books, handing them to him, getting close enough to whisper in his ear–

“You certainly are.”

  5. Sweet meeting and line.


  6. Thanks ❤ They ARE pretty sweet. Jeffrey has a tendency to exporess himself in notes at this point in their relationship, so I think I'll post on my blog some of the notes he left Bruce–romantic devil 🙂 I'd put them on Snippets but they're a little longer than six lines 🙂


  7. Very nice descriptions in this first meeting.
