Rainbow Snippets



Rainbow Snippets May 7th-8th

An unedited snippet from a manuscript we are working on.
Set in Victorian England. 
Jacob Doone visits London in search of his twin brother. His only lead, a flyer advertising a production of, Dr Faustus, at the Regents Theatre. On the back  his brother had penned. Must see! M, is simply outstanding. Love J.
M, turns out to be Mephistopheles. Played by the enigmatic, Christian DeLaCroix.


A nervous Jacob imbibes a whole bottle of champagne while waiting for Christian.


 Beautiful Deception. 


“Woops.” Jacob giggled as he lost his balance. The next thing he knew everything was upside down. For some unknown reason he found it even more amusing. 
“Behave,” Christian stated sternly, then followed his words with a stinging slap to Jacob’s backside. 
 Jacob clapped a hand to his mouth. The world righted itself when Christian gently deposited him on a stuffed chair. He sat for a few moments, then closed his eyes  praying the room would stop spinning. Unfortunately it only made it worse.

    1. Poor Jacob has a hangover to look forward to, not to mention when he thinks back on what he did. Thank you

  2. Uh oh! I sense that bottle of champagne was a really, really bad idea.

    1. The spinning room, I think anyone who has had a little too much to drink knows the feeling. Thanks for your comment
