Happy Wednesday! It’s been a bit of a rough week, but I’m hanging in there. Finished an editing job and started another. And it’s tech week for the school show! Any local friends, feel free to come on out to see High School Musical this weekend.
I didn’t get as much written as I’d have liked over the week, and I utterly failed to finish edits on Drumbeat. But I did get some done. I only worked on Minuet, finishing a couple of chapters last week.
Today’s snippet continues right from last week’s. I’m staying with Minuet because Mack’s being more talkative right now. As a refresher, Mack and his friend-with-benefits Amelia have gone to see Sage. Mack (and probably everyone who has been keeping up with the stories so far) would really, really like to punch Sage, but Amelia said not to. Here’s Sage’s reaction. Fair warning: Mack is sweary. (Edited to remove spoilers.)

“To what do I owe the pleasure?” Sage folded his arms.
“To your continued stalking of Jamie, you sick fuck,” Mack spat. He leaned forward far enough that Amelia tightened her grip on his shirt.
“That’s a good one. Listen, I have company, so you can come back later.” Sage went to shut the door.
Mack stuck out his foot, blocking it. “Not until we get this settled. Don’t you dare fucking lie to me, Sage. Did you know Jamie’s real messed up because of you? It’s not some game.” The way Jamie had looked the last time Mack saw him, blacked out on his bed, came to mind. At least a third of Mack’s rage wasn’t directed at Sage; it was aimed at himself. He’d seen the signs, but he’d ignored them. Mack wasn’t going to stand by and let a menace like Sage destroy a man Mack thought of as a brother.
“And how do you think I feel?” Sage, being Sage. Another non-shocker. “He’s the one who left me, not the other way around. Eight years, and you’d think he could at least talk it through first.”
“Eight years of you fucking with him,” Mack growled. “Don’t even try it, you asshole. Every one of us saw what you did.”
