this week's Rainbow Snippet* from Chapter 19:
After they heard the soft click of the front door as it latched shut, Jed picked up an aluminum pan but didn’t move to put it away. He scanned the mess scattered over every flat surface as if he wasn’t sure where he was or what he should be doing. “Why is casserole and cake necessary just because someone died? There’s enough here to feed a hundred people. And that’s not even including the pies and the potato salad.” Ian rescued the foil-wrapped pan when Jed’s hand began to shake. “Holy shit, I just came out!”
“Yes, Jedidiah, my dear, I do believe you did.”
