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:
“Why? Why did you hide being a woman?
Kel shrugged. “Because women can’t be warriors.” She sighed. “When I was a child, I was never interested in the things I was supposed to be interested in, in the things little girls were supposed to be interested in.”
Tirza nodded. She could understand that — she had been much the same as a child.
“Why… why didn’t you tell me that you were a woman? Why did you let me go on thinking that you were male?”
