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.
“Don’t lie to me, Luz.”
“I’m not. Please, Taliya.”
Taliya closed her eyes so she wouldn’t see the tears in Luzita’s. “All right,” she said finally. “You can stay. But if there is any trouble, you go, not Ayess.”
“You would choose… that… over me?”
“I know what you were like in school, Luzita. If there’s trouble, I’ll know where it started.” Taliya was surprised at the coldness in her voice.
“I…” Luzita lowered her eyes and nodded slowly.
Taliya sighed. “It’s been a long day – for both of us. I’m going to bed.”
