He watched Jamie kneel on the tatami mats and pour sake into the men’s cups and his heart broke. Trust, shattered. This should have been a sight that filled Gou with pride and yet he couldn’t muster a single flicker of desire at the sight of Jamie moving with well-practiced movements between the tables.

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).
