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.
More from Disturbed Magic (until or unless a better title comes along), continuing from last week. Tirza has just asked if Kel was a mercenary.
Kel’s laugh held just a trace of bitterness. “Not precisely, my lady; mercenaries get paid to fight or to act as guards, no one wants to hire me.”
“I do.” Tirza found herself surprised at her own impulsiveness, but she could not deny the truth of her words: if anyone could get her to The Eastonesse Barrens, it would be Kel.
“You want to hire me.” Kel’s voice was slow, questioning.
“You want to hire me,” Kel repeated when she nodded, trying to make the words sink in. “To do what?”
“To take me where I need to go.”
