This week I have been celebrating with my friends on GayAurthors.org. I have been given the honor of being promoted to Promising Author status.
Check it out by clicking here
I am very thankful to all my friends and fellow authors on this site. They have helped my work so much and encouraged me even when I wanted to curl up and hide.
The banner that now decorates my blog header was designed by Alicia Nordwell, author and artist, to celebrate my promotion. I am so thankful to her and if you want to check out her work visit her at http://ciasstories.blogspot.co.uk/ I would highly recommend a visit soon as she has a FREE book available, along with over thirty other authors, until the 15th of February. Who can pass up a FREE book????
Now, for the fun bit I thought you’d all like a short little piece about a party, fancy dress, and dates. 😉
GA Prompt 550
First line – There is no way I’m wearing that!
Chris and Dereck
“There is no way I’m wearing that!” Dereck snapped.
Chris looked at the costume he was holding then back at his furious looking partner. “Why not?”
“I’ll look like an idiot. That’s why not!”
“But, it’s couples costume night. We’re supposed to either dress in matching costume or as a famous couple. If you don’t like this what about, Tweedle-dumb and Tweedle-dee? They’d be less revealing if that’s the problem.”
“I don’t have a problem showing skin, you know that. I do have a problem, however, looking like an idiot.”
“You’ll look like an even bigger idiot if you show up not wearing a costume and everyone else is dressed up.”
“Fine,” Dereck snapped and snatched the hanger out of Chris’ hand. He stormed to the bedroom and slammed the door, shaking the walls of their bedroom.
The noise coming from the club indicated the party was well underway as Chris and Dereck rushed up.
“I told you we’d be late,” Chris whined pulling at his top, and patting his hair.
“You were the one primping for ages, even after I was ready to go.”
Still huffing Chris pulled the main door open and froze.
“What’s the hold up, babe? Come on this costume is draughty.” Dereck pushed past and froze next to his lover.
Everyone near the door had stopped and were staring at them. And not one of them was wearing a costume.
“Um.” Their friend Colin pushed through the crowd and rushed up to them. “The costume night was last night,” he hissed.
Dereck rounded on his boyfriend and snarled, “You got the wrong day? You have a reminder on your phone for everything. How could you do this to me?”
He turned on his ridiculously, high heels and swept out the door, the cape of his wonder woman costume swirling out behind him.
