Rainbow Snippet for 2-13-2016

rainbow logo 1

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.”

“Are you?”

“Am I what?”

“A mercenary.”

So, Kel, are you a mercenary?  Guess we’ll find out next week.

    This story is really drawing me in.

    My money is on, yes, he is but he doesn’t think of himself as such!

  4. Interesting detail on both characters here. I like how confident and knowledgeable Kel sounds.

  5. I”m guessing Kel could be, but maybe isn’t at the moment, until Tirza needs one. :)

  6. Nice snippet. And my guess is yes, but I suppose we’ll have to wait and see…
