Welcome to another Rainbow Snippet from Favourite Toy – the second edition was released last week and my previous snip saw Dean telling his friend Ryan that his one night with Casper, which Ryan had picked for him, didn’t mean anything. Casper overheard and stormed off. Dean hasn’t seen him for a week, but now he’s on his lunch-break with a workmate and Casper inadvertently gets his own back.

“I’ll be back in a minute.” I moved away from the table towards Casper, aware that only about six feet separated us from Mark. “Can I speak to you for a minute?”
“What about?” His eyes narrowed.
“I wanted to say sorry. I—”
“Don’t bother. Like we both said, it was a hook-up.” His voice was much too clear, and I glanced anxiously at Mark, who stared back at me with wide eyes.
“Casper, shush. Can we just—?”
“Don’t shush me!” Clutching his wrapped sandwich fiercely in one hand, he planted the other hand on his hip and glared. “I don’t know why you even bothered speaking to me! You slept with me for a bet, and we all know what your real type is. Don’t think I didn’t see you with that blond guy on Friday.”
“Fuck.” Grabbing his arm, I tugged him a few steps along the street until he wrenched free. “Thanks a fucking bunch. You just outed me to one of my workmates.”
“Oh!” His scowl vanished, and his cheeks flushed. “Shit. I didn’t know. I’m sorry, Dean.”
“Forget it. Like you said, I shouldn’t have bothered.” Mortified, I turned away and went back to the table. Mark’s expression said it all. I didn’t need to hear anything he might have to say, but I listened anyway. Casper had already disappeared.
