Title: Lime and Tangerine
Author: Kevin Caucher
Genre: Gay Romance, Science Fiction
Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing
The post-apocalyptic world has changed. Colors have changed.
The skies are now red, and the seas fandango pink.
There are those who’ve acquired skills as “squinters”. By narrowing their eyes, they can see people in different colors—colors by which they can define their mood.
Senlin was born a squinter. A child of the foster system, the lack of love has left him with casual views on sex.
When Sicong recruits him into SQX, a squinter organization, Senlin wants nothing more than to jump his bones, but Sicong’s detachment makes Senlin believe his feelings aren’t reciprocated.
Senlin and Sicong’s relationship begins to grow as they undertake missions together.
That is, until an enemy of SQX turns his attention upon them.
While Sic took his shower, I flopped back on the bed, not bothering to put anything on. I didn’t know what that meant. Sic had avoided the topic of our little lips-to-lips after I apologized. Being a straightforward guy, I wouldn’t have expected him to let go of a topic like that. It was just… confusing. Maybe he needed time to think about how to react. I heard when Sic finished his shower. I looked to the door of my bedroom and braced myself for whatever reaction I might get from him.
A few minutes later he came back to the bedroom, a towel wrapped around his waist. When he saw me, he stopped dead in his tracks. He leaned on the door frame and casually regarded me. Since I desperately wanted to know what was on his mind, I decided to mood-color him. When I squinted, I was, to be honest, surprised.
“You’re orange.” I stated the obvious.
“Tangerine, to be exact, and so are you.” He grinned and walked toward me, loosening his towel along the way.
