Rainbow Snippet of the Weekend

I am still drawing from the second book of Uncommon Bonds for this #RainbowSnippets.

Today I am going to obey the rule of the snippets and only give you six sentences (I normally prefer to write six paragraphs, especially if they are primarily dialogue.   I am writing about Liam.  He already secretly came to terms with the fact that he was actually bisexual, but he was not out as such except for a few friends.  He made this realisation at the end of the first book.


For Dave and Allison it was no secret that Liam changed his mind and actually considered himself bisexual. Much to Liam’s relief, they were supportive, even if they struggled with this discovery. After all, many people considered bisexuality a stepping stone to come out as fully gay, and Liam was doing something that was quite unknown to both of his friends. However, only they and Jonah knew Liam’s secret. He did not want to tell Greg because Greg would either dismiss this confession or dismiss their friendship altogether, even if Liam hoped that Greg would come around with the idea that bisexuality existed. As for his family, he preferred to wait until he really fell in love with a woman, if that happened, or when Ian was an adult. 


  Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).
In this group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

    1. Liam is afraid that Ian would be confused, as he already has accepted he is gay, given that Ian is a teenager and all. Liam is always a sack of nerves making mountains out of molehills, hehe.

    1. See, that’s pretty much Liam’s thinking at this point. His family already saw him with a boyfriend and even he perceived himself as gay for a long time (we have to bear in mind that at this point it was also the mid-90’s and only recently it was legal to be gay in Ireland).

      Liam’s way of thinking was that he already was out as gay to his family, so he feared that things would be more complicated if he told his family that he discovered he liked women as well.

      But also, again, Liam is a sack of nerves and he makes mountains out of molehills. Sure, his family will have a lot of questions, as did Dave and Allison initially. (Jonah didn’t because he is bisexual too.)

    1. You mean Liam?

      I think it is difficult because he has to come out once again and having to explain things that even he struggled with for a while.

    1. Tell me about it. My siblings and mother have accepted my bisexuality but they are still struggling with it. Especially my mother.
