The Skype Meeting

This snippet is from The Ancient, which I read this week in preparation for inserting some of the characters into my WIP. Bruce has just had a Skype conference with Alasdair and Bruce’s boss, and after that dance at the wedding, he’s not really comfortable about it–around his boss, that is:

.  Why was he feeling like this?   Maybe he just found it hard to be the butt of speculation, however silent it was.  He had the feeling that men were even worse than women when it came to gossip.  If Alasdair had been a woman, Halford would have been slapping his back. They all knew he was bi, what was the big deal? He was also married. They must have been thinking he would jump on anything that moved or something.

  1. I can feel for Bruce here. I’d hate to be the center of gossip, too.


    1. It isn’t very comforting, is it?

      Liked by 1 person

  2. Men are definitely bigger gossips than women. Or just as bad, at any rate.


    1. Oh yes–maybe just as bad, but gossiping about different things– 🙂


  3. Yeah, he’s definitely feeling picked on ❤


  4. No one likes to be gossiped about


  5. No, they don’t–Bruce has been upfront with his co-workers from the beginning; he deserves better. Even if he hadn’t come out, they should have left him alone when it came to his sexuality.


  6. Nice way to twist the stereotypes


  7. Thanks 🙂 I’ve heard them for years, so it was pretty easy.


  8. I totally get where Bruce is coming from…


    1. So do I 🙂 I do feel there’s a need for real bi characters, and there’s no need to throw them into a threesome just to prove their orientation 🙂


  9. Oh yeah, the myths of bisexuals and rampant biphobia. Great snippet, Kathy.


    1. Thank you very much, my dear 🙂


  10. OMG. Yeah, the awfulness of biphobia. And it doesn’t seem to go away no matter how long you’ve been out to some folks, like they’re waiting to be proved right somehow. Ick.


  11. Oh yes–I did identify with Bruce here.You get slammed by the straight and the gay community on both sides. Bruce and Jeffrey were my first bi characters that I crafted 🙂 they won’t be my last, though ❤
