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.
Tirza is curious about Sword Dancers, despite Kel’s insistence that they don’t exist.
“Why are they illegal?”
Kel sighed, sensing that there would be no rest until Tirza’s curiosity was satisfied. And maybe it would be for the best; the sooner she was convinced that Sword Dancers did not exist, the safer they both would be.
“Because they were considered to be too dangerous to be allowed to live.”
“I would think,” Tirza said slowly, “that it would have made more sense for the rulers to have taken them on as personal or palace guards, an elite force.”
“No,” Kel replied. “The Sword Dancers swore allegiance to no one. They held to their own codes, which were far more honorable than those of the ones in power.”
