LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings
Hello & welcome! I’m finalizing the galley proof for Speedbump this weekend, so I’m going to snippet from it too.
This is from Red’s second chapter. Earlier, Ezra’s truck had forced them to walk home—which is how Ez and Red met in the first place. It’s a little longer than 6 sentences for context.
It started out innocently enough. I thought I’d go for a drive and see if the old truck—Ezra’s International—was still there. If it was, maybe I’d swing by and see if he needed a ride out to get it. That sounded neighborly, and I didn’t have anything better to do. By the time I got there, it was very obvious it’d never really been innocent. Just thinking about him made me hard and stupid. If I had any sense, I would stay as far away from Ezra Cook as I could. If I was half as smart as I used to think I was, I would drive in to Portland and look up a few old friends instead of wasting gas on a deserted highway out in the middle of nowhere. Nobody within five miles could help me find a new band, and that’s what I needed to do.
So why, then, did I pull off the road when I saw the truck?

Why, indeed? 😉
I suspect he knows why and just doesn’t want to admit it.
Hahaha…because he’s thinking with his little head?
Yay for hard and stupid! LOL
Very nice bit of introspection here.
I like the introspection in this snippet.
