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.
This follows directly from last week, so here’s the last line:
“Nothing. Nothing I can describe, anyhow. But if it happens again I’ll tell you and you can put a trace on it.”
Ayess laughed at the joke. “I am getting closer to the source of the power flux,” he told her. “I haven’t been able to locate it yet, or even completely narrow it down, but it does seem to be coming from the same place every time.”
“Is there a pattern to it?”
“Not that I have found.”
“Wouldn’t life be dull without random anomalies?”
“Very,” he murmured.
She tilted her head. “What are you thinking?”
He smiled. “I was thinking about randomness. Without it, we might not be here right now.”
“True. I wonder how much of life is randomness and how much is fate?”
“And I wonder if there is a difference between the two.”

That last line is an interesting point to ponder….
I really enjoyed their exchange and that bit about randomness is something to ponder.
Ah, Ayess makes an interesting point!
That’s definitely an interesting question to consider. I’m also wondering if the power flux is as random as it seems.
Will always love that last line.
Love the philosophical exchange!
Love that last line.
Great last line. Well worth thinking about. :-)
