Rainbow Snippet time again, and this is another snippet from The Story of Love. A little context.... Terry has been helping Zack with something (no spoilers here) that's important to Zack. Archie, Zack's long-term boyfriend, doesn't like Terry at all. Zack has gone back to Terry's flat - it's innocent... honest...
“Here, you take her.” Terry stepped up close to Zack. “Anyway, she’s a kitten not a cat, so you have to make sure you hold her tight, otherwise she’ll wriggle out of your hands.” Terry pushed Miranda to Zack’s chest, forcing Zack to take her from him.
Zack felt the animal’s warmth in his hands. He also felt the heat of Terry’s body, scant inches from his own as Terry edged in closer. Terry angled his head, leaning forward as he sought Zack’s lips. The kitten mewled and wriggled free of Zack’s hands, bounding to the floor and scrambling away. Zack pressed his hands against Terry’s chest, stopping Terry’s lips meeting his own.
Zack leaned forward and rested his brow against Terry’s and closed his eyes.
“Miranda’s got nine lives,” Terry murmured, “but we haven’t. We’ve only got the one, so we need to make the most of it.”
Zack took a step backwards.
