Happy Saturday! Posting this a bit later than usual because we were busy with the kids’ birthday party. They arranged the whole thing, invited guests, and decided what they wanted to do. We just took care of the food and supervising them. They wanted a pizza party at the park down the street, so that’s what we did. Now we’re home and relaxing.
Today’s snippet is from later on in the same story I’ve been posting from, “Pretty Boyish.” It can be found in my anthology Leaps of Faith (link in sidebar). Last time, Cat was admiring a bathing suit. This time, he’s turned his attention to a person.
There was also a new boy, and Cat stopped short when he saw him. The boy was, for lack of a better word, beautiful. Radiant, even. Cat was sure he’d never seen anyone so wonderful in his life. Later, when they were older, this would be a joke between them. For now, Cat was mesmerized watching the boy’s graceful motion as he lay back in the grass and put his hands behind his head.
