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.
I’m still posting from Onyx Sun, a science fiction novel that is currently in revision. The revisions are turning out to be more complex than originally expected so the release date is, um, to be determined. (I’ve given up trying to predict one, but I am hoping to be through with the current round of revisions by the end of the month.)
This snippet comes a bit after last week’s in which Ayess was setting up something to trace the source of the intermittent power flux on the ship.
“Just wait until we finish the paperwork at the bank,” Taliya grinned. “You’ll probably wish you were still in a collar.”
“Only if you were my owner.” He smiled, stretching slightly. “Im glad you will let me stay with you.”
For just a moment there seemed to be a soft glow from his eyes and Taliya blinked hard and shook her head to clear her vision.
“Are you all right?”
“I’m fine. I think my eyes are just tired, or not used to the air here. I’m seeing things.”
“What did you think you saw?”
“Nothing. Nothing I can describe, anyhow. But if it happens again I’ll tell you and you can put a trace on it.”

Uh, oh. Something tells me it’s not “nothing.” :-/
Betting it’s not nothing.
That doesn’t quite sound like “nothing.”
That doesn’t sound like nothing. Intriguing!
I sooooo want to read this in its entirety. I might have said that before. I really love the rapport between these two, they’re so in tune.
Uh, oh. I’m with Debbie, I want to read it too. And intermittent faults… so not nice.
