Snippet today comes from my main WIP, the second book in the Covenant series, AETERNUM. It’s from the current chapter, and here’s the set up. Two words: bachelor party. However, the party was not planned by one of David’s and Jonathan’s close friends, but by Autumn Varner, a new friend David’s made through a coffee shop. A good friend he made through her, is Kai Hoedemaeker, a model working in New York.
Without further adieu, here is the snippet, and it’s likely to be a bit longer than 6, since so many of the sentences are short.
“First of all, I’m letting you know you’re going to be bored stiff. The place we’re going does not cater to us.” Kai flipped through both David’s and Jonathan’s side of the closet before finally settling on a black A-shirt and a red flannel shirt. “Where are the trousers?”
“On the shelf above the tees.” David pointed them out. “We both wear the same size, so mine and his are all mixed up.”
Kai looked through until he found a ragtag pair. “These. Put them on. I do your makeup when you are dressed.”
David grinned, cocking his head to one side. “Will you do my makeup on Saturday?”
Kai smiled wickedly. “I think you never ask! Of course, I will be happy to oblige.”
In no time, David sat backwards in the desk chair, eyes closed as Kai deftly applied eyeliner and shadow, mascara and lip liner. A hint of color and David’s shiny glitter gloss, Kai’s hands went to David’s hair, using a bit of gel and pomade to give life to his curls. When he finished, he grabbed his camera from his bag and took a couple of photos. “For posterity’s sake… and for Jonathan. Little preview for what I do for Saturday.” Kai blushed. “And because I think you are beautiful always, but here, little nervous… little aggravated… positively stunning.”
Hope you like!
