Missed last weeks Rainbow Snippets as I was busy with Gymnastics and attending the local writers festival on top of getting my own work done, like publishing Tokyo Nights Episode Seven. I have finished the last of the drafts for Season One, just need to work through them for edits and have already thought about how to proceed with Season Two. Additionally as I’ve grown rather fond of my secondary character ‘Jun Sagaki’ I’ve begun to write a novella for him, which in the Tokyo Nights timeline will fall between Season One and Season Two.
This weeks snippet comes from Episode Eight which I am currently working through the edits for.
Hisato had betrayed Ogawa, hurt him and yet, he didn’t hesitate to reach for him. He brushed his fingers along the man’s stubbled jaw wanting to remember everything about him. Watched as Ogawa fought the urge not to kill him but kiss him, teeth gritted, and eyes closed tight. He thought this small bit of knowledge that he wasn’t the only one with conflicted emotions – loyalties – would bring him relief. Hoped it would soothe his aching heart as it cracked into a thousand pieces and scattered over the oil-soaked floor of the warehouse. But it didn’t. Instead it made the churning of his guts and the hollowness in his chest worse.
