Tease Me Thursday: Love's Landscapes Story

For this week’s Tease Me Thursday, I thought it would be fun to post a snippet from a free story I’m writing for the GoodReads M/M Romance group event, Love’s Landscapes.

In this bit, marketing ace Sean Whelan, who has been kicked to the curb by his business partner, tells his mother he has taken a menial job at Dippolito’s Italian Bakery.

~~~~~~~

“A bakery?” It was amazing how Sean’s mother’s voice managed to convey so many negative impressions in two words. It was a gift.

“An Italian bakery.”

“That doesn’t make any sense. You’re Irish. And you stopped eating pastry when you started that running thing you do. Are you still running?”

“Yes, Mom. This is a job, a way to get out of the house and make a little cash. I’ll be decorating cakes.”

Silence.

“Mom?”

“Are you doing this because you’re gay?”
