It’s time for Tuesday Tales!
Welcome back! This week is our picture prompt week and all posts must reflect the chosen image. Today’s post is from the next coauthored book with RJ Scott, Shadow and Light, Raptors #3. In this little snippet we get to visit with Apollo Vasquez, a side character in the Railers series who now is getting his own book and handsome hockey player!
This story may have gay erotic scenes, strong social issues addressed and mature language. If those things offend now is the time to move onto another Tuesday Tales blog. Thanks for stopping by!
Another sigh escaped me. I poked at the casserole with a wooden spoon, muttered under my breath, then placed the spoon to the blue-and-white checkered placemat. Dinner was ruined. Again. For the fourth time this week. Kicking my foot as I sat humped up at the new kitchen island Adler had installed for me to ease my upset over an incident two months ago, I pushed the dried-up husk of what had been vegetarian lasagna away and stared down at my phone.
“Why does he disrespect me so?” I asked Madonna as she wheeled around with a puma – although she sweetly called it a tiger oh my God wasn’t she just the most amazing person to walk the planet? – in a cage in the backseat of a Rolls Royce. When feeling blue, I watch Who’s That Girl. I’d always loved the movie but the past six months had raised my views through the roof. “Is it asking too much for the man to get home in time for dinner?” My foot was swinging so hard my slipper flew off, sailing across the kitchen just in time to hit Adler in the face. “Good. Serves you right. Where have you been?!”
He blinked, bent over to pick up my silver slipper, then gave me that off-kilter smile of his. “Uhm, I was with him.” He jerked a thumb at Layton Foxx standing behind him.
Ah. Yes, of course he had been. He was always with Layton. They were in love. I was alone with a crusty lasagna and Madonna sounding like some sort of queer fishwife bitching at her husband.
Thanks so much for dropping by!

Poor thing. How frustrating. Hope things improve. Great scene.

I love the line “dried-up husk of…” so evocative. After reading it I could visualize it completely. Interesting interplay here. Jealousy? Or just feeling left out? Looking forward to more of this story.

Oh, you did NOT go and leave us right here, did you??
Bad, bad, bad!
Excellent scene! But I wanted more, wanted to keep reading!
Great descriptions! I can totally see the lasagna. And I loved Who’s That Girl! (When I was a kid but…)
