Rainbow Snippets is running like clockwork

Stopped clockwork, that is. I seem to have missed 2 weeks, when I thought it’d been only one! Oops. 😉

This week’s snippet comes from the same f/f steampunk short story as last time’s, London Lark, and carries on with just a small jump from the previous snippet:

We laid her down on the worktop, her golden hair falling free from its pins and spilling out over the scarred wood like sunshine, and I turned up the gas so’s I could see what I was about.

“Costs money, gas does,” old Arthur griped, and then he clapped me on the shoulder and left to keep a prior appointment with a tuppenny’s worth of gin.

“Chucked out of some toff’s carriage in the night, were you?” I murmured as I unscrewed her head from her poor neck. “Too embarrassed to take you in for repair after what he done, I’ll bet. So he ought to be, being so rough with a fine lady like you.”

I lifted her head clean off her neck, and her eyelids fluttered, then fell shut. Gave me a warm feeling, you know? Like she was trusting me to see her right while she slept.
