rainbow snippets, work-in-progress

So for the Rainbow Snippets for this weekend, I'm posting six lines from a work in progress. Wish me luck for completing it! It's been in progress for a very long time. But when it is done, I swear it'll be great fun.

Brandon felt a bit more like a rampaging monster as he clod hopped off trail, unintentionally crushing a fern with his very first step. He followed Aran and found himself in a secluded glade. The trees stretched high, with wide branches, and a curtain of ferns to one side shielded them from sight. The land sloped just enough to create a private dwelling spot on the other side of the outcropping of rocks. There was even a broad wide spot, looking soft with pine needles and moss. A better spot couldn't have been prepared for their tryst if Brandon had planned it out.

    1. The outdoors is sometimes better enjoyed by reading about it. Fewer insects that way! :)
