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.


“Cryptic,” ni muttered.  “Hidden…”  Ni prodded the chamber.  “Taliya, what is beneath this floor?” 

“A crawlspace – access to the power circuits and such, why?”

“Have you ever been in there?”

She laughed.  “The ship still works, doesn’t it?”  She stared at ni.  “You think there is something down there?”

Ayess nodded.  “And it may be something that someone wants very badly.”

The met each others’ gaze for a long moment.  “Let’s find out,” Taliya said.

Ayess’ race does not have words for he/she/his/hers, etc, because they are (for lack of a better term) hermaphroditic. Their pronouns to refer to other members of their race are “ni” (for he/she/him/her), “ni-es” (his/hers), “ni-en” (they/them) and “ni-en-es” for theirs.
