Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, bloggers, and readers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!). Check out all the other awesome snippets by clicking on the picture above.
Continuing from Disturbed Magic (until or unless a better title comes along) but skipping ahead a bit. Tirza has convinced Kel to join her for supper – her treat – as a thank you for saving her life. Tirza is looking for her father, who is rumored to live in the Eastonesse Barrens. Kel has advised her to book passage with a caravan.
“I don’t think that I care much for trade caravans,” Tirza replied. “Or at least, not for the men who guard them. I think I’d be safer on my own than with men like those.”
“If you were part of the caravan you would have nothing to fear from them. The guards are usually mercenaries, but most mercenaries honor their contracts.”
“Am I what?”
So, Kel, are you a mercenary? Guess we’ll find out next week.
