The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.
This week’s quote is from The Rules and Regulations for Mediating Myths & Magic by F. T. Lukens. It’s a great little urban fantasy starring a bisexual teenage boy.
Leo circled back and splashed Bridger. Then he swam away, laughing as he kicked enthusiastically and doused Bridger with lake water.
Bridger wiped the droplets from his face. “Oh, I see how it is. Splashing then running. Very brave there, Leo.”
Leo stood in the water to his shoulders and beckoned to Bridger with a sly smile. “I’m right here. Why don’t you come get me?”
That was flirting. Wasn’t it? That had to be flirting. Right?
“Oh,” Bridger said flushing, warming internally at the thought of Leo flirting with him. “It is on. It is so on.”
