Rainbow Snippet for 2-27-2016

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 wants to hire Kel, much to Kel’s disbelief.

“Why wouldn’t I want to hire you?”

Kel shrugged and took another sip of wine, delaying an answer as their meal was placed on the table.  “Because most people prefer their guards to be… larger.”

“I just saw you take down half a dozen men twice your size.  I know what you are, Kel.  You’re a Sword Dancer.”

Suddenly the tavern fell silent, all attention focused on them.

  7. A sword dancer… Love the silence in the tavern! Must mean something dangerous. :)

  8. Nice one. I really want to know more about Kel.

  9. Ooh. That’s quite a cliffhanger.

  10. This is intriguing. What does a sword dancer do? Perhaps “dancing around multiple swords that are thrusting at him? We shall see–
