Welcome to Rainbow Snippets! Today, Fredrick comes face to face with a dream…
* * *
He shook his head at his eagerness. It had been three years, after all, and they’d parted in anger. Would William acknowledge him? A man stepped onto the landing and Fredrick allowed his gaze to travel up the white spats and checkered trousers. Blood heated his face when he found the silk vest and shirt open at the throat to expose soft white skin.
A sigh brought his gaze up to the attractive face that stirred his dreams. Rich brown curls surrounded lovely hazel eyes and full, pouting lips. Panic swept the pretty face, then a delighted smile revealed the even white teeth that had nipped his collarbone on more than one glorious occasion.
“Freddie, is it you?”
William Wilkerson leads the life of the privileged rich. Head of his father’s shipping business, he indulges to his heart’s content in the pleasures of the flesh with Boston’s finest young men.
That is, until he reunites with Fredrick: his former tutor and the one man who captured his heart.
But William’s father has declared Fredrick off limits. And Fredrick, himself, believes he’s beneath the attention of the Wilkerson heir.
After having lost his current pupil to graduation, and with no prospects of a replacement, Frederick is homeless, hungry, and easy pickings for the men on the docks.
When Frederick is shanghaied into service on William’s own merchant ship, will William discover his plight in time to rescue him?
This should be an interesting reunion.
Yay! They might’ve parted in anger, but apparently each is glad to see the other. 🙂
Ooh, can’t wait to see how this plays out. Doesn’t look like they’re holding onto that anger. 🙂
Interesting. I wonder hwo this reunion is going to go.
It sounds like he’s pleased to see Freddie – I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
Lovely. I love how drawn to him Freddie is, and the genuine welcome he gets.
Mmm, this is lovely. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
Great description — captures the emotional as well as the physical.
Lovely! Looking forward to more of this reunion.
