Book Excerpt possibly triggering

Post by Herman_the_Merman » Sun Jul 24, 2016 7:22 pm

This is an excerpt from a new novel I'm working on. It is about Nate Harris, a recently blind young man and his boyfriend Ben Anderson trying to get through life after the Orlando Shooting. This is a rough concept for the first few paragraphs. Let me know what you think of it. :D



Dark. Dark. Dark. Everything is black.
"Nate, you're awake!" A voice... I think it's Ben. "Fuck, you're alive. You're lucky you weren't blown to bits." His voice hitches a bit.
"Ben..." My voice, it's so hoarse, how long have I been out? Before I know it I'm pulled into a tight hug.
"I love you, you know that." Ben says, I feel him tense up a bit, soon my shirt is dampened. It is now that I return the hug, pecking his forehead.
"I know, I love you too."
Thank you.
