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.
Picking up from last week – Maresh has just told Tirza that Kel is female.
Maresh watched the confusion in Tirza’s eyes, her heart aching at the lost look in them, and she reached out and pulled Tirza to her, holding her tightly. “It’s all right,” she soothed. “She is still Kel. She hasn’t changed.”
“But I… I wanted… I hoped…”
“You wanted to spend the rest of your life with Kel.”
“Yes. If… if he wanted me. But now…”
“But now?” Maresh stroked Tirza’s hair. “Kel still wants you, Tirza. She is deeply in love with you.”
“But we can’t… we’re both women.”
“You can still travel together, be together. You can still love each other.”
