Rainbow Snippet - Homecoming, A Tested Love Bonus Scene

Homecoming is an A Tested Love bonus scene featuring Apollo x Halys. You can read it in it's entirety on Charley Descoteaux's blog. Warning: NSFW

Halys knelt on the cool marble of the antrum, awaiting his lord's return.  The doorkeeper had kept watch and informed him when his lord Apollo's chariot was seen approaching. Halys had hurried to the bench next to the door with a pile of soft cloths and a bronze bowl of warm water.


The torches guttered, throwing wild shadows on the walls. Smoke filled his nostrils and spoke of secret things, passions best shared in the dark. Had the goddess of lust and sex exerted her wiles on his lord?

    1. Halys is very much a free spirit and a touch wild himself. He's a pan one of Pan's descendants.

  5. I really like this line: "Smoke filled his nostrils and spoke of secret things, passions best shared in the dark." Very nice snippet.

  6. I'm guessing the answer to that last question is probably going to be a "yes"... ;)
