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.
Skipping ahead a bit from last week. Tirza and Maresh are talking about Tirza’s future plans (which involve Kel) and Tirza asks Maresh if she can ask her a question.
“I-it’s about Kel. When we came here, he… he was certain that I would learn something about him that would make me hate him. He won’t tell me what it is and I cannot think of anything that would make me not love him.” She looked up at Maresh, her eyes pleading. “Do you know what it is, Maresh?”
“I do,” Maresh replied softly.
“What is it?”
“Does it matter?”
“Yes,” Tirza whispered.
“Because if I don’t know what it is, I can’t prove that it doesn’t.”
