Teaser Tuesday: Unnatural

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser:

What he saw made him disgusted, scared, but yes, just a little excited even though he knew what he was seeing wasn’t right. Tomorrow at church he would pray that it would all go away, that he would be able to change who he was, but tonight … tonight he would lock his bedroom door, block out the sounds coming from downstairs, and think about R.J. And he would convince himself that it was the most natural thing in the world.

    1. the boy was listening to his mother and grandfather argue about him. The grandfather thought he was pansy (i.e. gay) Well, he is gay, but not the other thing.

      1. awww – sad. not about the gay thing, but about the relatives arguing about it. LOL – love pansies, myself. If I were gay, I think being referred to as a flower might be kind of nice…although I realize it’s not meant as a nice thing when people use it this way.

        When my brother came out, thankfully no one reacted in a strong way, and he was very worried about it at first – the main worry being about how mom would handle it. But all is well.

        1. No, they are being mean. His own grandfather! Sissy, other words like that.

          Glad everything is okay for your brother. With this character, not one of his family reacted well.

Say something and make my day!
