Rainbow Snippet for 5-27-2017

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’ snippet of Onyx Sun.

Luzita reached up to touch her neck, not quite believing that it was bare, that there was no band of metal on it.  Slowly she turned to face Taliya.

“You freed me?”

“You know how I feel about slavery.”

“Maureena said that you told her to sell me.”  Luzita’s voice choked off as she broke down.  “I… She demanded that I pay for my room and board and I had no money.  She wouldn’t let me call you – she said she had talked to you and you said you wouldn’t pay it either, and that you told her to go ahead and sell me.”

“And you believed that?”  Taliya wasn’t sure if she was more angry or hurt or outraged.

“I never heard from you after you left and I couldn’t call you, she had my comm blocked.  And she said things that sounded true – that I was no more important to you than any of the servants, that we were all the same to you.”  There was a pleading tone in her voice.

  1. Ah-ha! So that’s what’s been behind Luzita’s unappreciative behavior. Now I wonder which one of those reactions Taliya will take…or will she be forgiving?

  2. What a stunningly awful bitch Maureena is. I was going to say that is an all-time low, but sadly it isn’t. I hope things get better for both of them from now on

  3. Yup, I called it. Maureena isn’t giving up on splitting up her daughter and heiress from the woman she sees as unworthy of her. Why do I have a bad feeling Taliya is her only heir, too? 😔

  4. Did something happen to Rainbow Snippets on Facebook? I can no longer see or comment on them. I was told you’d turned the commenting off?

    I would like to find a way to get back at Maureena for her horrible actions. I hope Taliya and Luzita are able to work through this.

    Maureena is a total bitch. I hope she gets what she deserves.

    Oh, the lies told in order to hurt someone. Great snippet, P.T.

    Poor Luzita, I hope Maureena is going to get her comeuppance.

  9. Isolation, lying… are you going to get Maureena later? I do hope so!

    It looks like this might be her chance now that Luzita is beginning to at least be willing to talk about what happened.
