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.

Taliya looked down at the collar in her hand and abruptly turned away. “In the morning I will take you to the planet of your choice, and I will give you money to make a fresh start on a new life.”
“No, wait. Please.” Luzita reached out and grabbed Taliya’s arm, turning her around to face her. “Please don’t turn me out. I… I’m sorry, Taliya. Just, the things she said, she… She made it all sound so reasonable…”
“It’s not just that,” Taliya replied. “The things you said about Ayess…”
Luzita flushed. “I – I’m sorry. I… I know how you are, how you feel about other races and… And I was just trying to hurt you the way you hurt me.”
