Rainbow Snippets

Ugh it's midterms and I'm still sitting here with tooth pain so I'll just drop this snippet and run.

Continuing on with These Haunted Hill Brendan is having a massive panic attack about losing his pendant and Josh just found it in his truck. It's longer than 7 sentences but it completes the thought

Brendan whipped around so fast, he slammed a shoulder into the porch. He toppled with a cry. Josh raced over, dropping into a crouch next to him. He put a hand on Brendan’s sweating shoulder. It bled a little from where it kissed the wooden porch.

“What’s wrong? It’s just a necklace.”

Brendan snagged it from Josh’s hand, shaking so hard he nearly dropped it. He put it around his neck without comment. His trembling fingers brushed the glass, lingering over the metallic blue swirl of glass inside the pendant. “It’s Connor.”

“I don’t understand.” Josh sat on the edge of the porch.

“It’s part of his ashes. They make them into glass art.” He closed his fingers around it. “I can’t lose this. I can’t lose part of my son.” Brendan wept a few tears then they came as a torrent.

Josh caught his breath. He slipped an arm around Brendan’s back. “I didn’t know.”

Brendan shook his head. “His mother and I did different things with Connor’s ashes. I wanted just a tiny part of him to keep with me always.”
