Rainbow Snippets is feeling Sapphic

Today’s snippet comes from one of my lesbian short stories, First Time, which appears in the Desire Behind Bars anthology. Mel and Ella are cellmates:

Ella’s been with me a week (not that I’m counting) before she asks about it. “You’re not what I expected,” she says, tracing the curve of my bicep with one dainty little finger. She’s seen me—well, she couldn’t miss it, could she, not when we’re banged up together—doing pull-ups on the bunk. Push-ups and sit-ups on the floor. I like the way I look, like how I can hold my own in a fight against anyone. I don’t mind working hard to keep it.

“What do you mean?” I ask her.

“Well… You never…” and instead of finishing that sentence she takes my hand in her little one and places it on her breast.
