Rainbow Snippet for 2-20-2016

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.

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.”

    Hah, I knew he was a mercenary.

  2. Good for her. But I still think there’s more to Kel… Can’t wait to find out if my suspicions are correct!

  3. Hm now we know what he is not but not what he is… You tease!

    I’m curious to know where she’s going and what they’ll encounter on the way.

    Still wanting more of Kel and his world.

    • Thanks! I’ll be sticking with this for a while. I’m almost considering finishing it… Once I get a bunch of other projects done. *sigh* Too many novels, too little time!

  6. Nice progression. He’s already shown, to an extent, that he can be trusted and she has proof of his competence. I’d hire him :)

  7. Ooh, the plot thickens. I’m intrigued to know what happens next.

  8. Road trip! <3

    I'm sure we'll find out a lot about Kel while they're on the road! ;)

  9. Very interesting. Looking forward to more!
