A brand new short story, and I’m giving it away for free! At just 6,500 words, this little gay romcom will keep you amused for a good 20–30 minutes. And if you like what you’re reading, there’s a whole bunch more of the story ready and waiting for you!
Set out with Arthur and Gabriel on their date night to get a taste of the Rise and Shine series in this short story set between the events of Slip and Slide and Over and Out.
Arthur and Gabriel are officially boyfriends, and it’s Valentine’s Day – what are two guys to do?
Arthur has a few ideas, unfortunately those will have to wait until after their dinner date. Oh, and after the amateur art exhibition they’ve promised to attend. It’s not how either of them would’ve chosen to spend the evening, but at least they’ll endure it together.
All the while, Arthur’s flip-flopping between warm fuzzies and thirsty anticipation. He knows he’d rather be having Gabriel, but for now he’ll have to make do with the complimentary room-temperature white wine.
Still, with their tendency to attract melodrama, will the boys even make it to dinner?
