Still posting from Book Five of the Academy of the Accord (fantasy) series that I have been (and will be) working on for forever.
I’m picking up from last week, where Draethlen asked Wellhym if he and Kordelm were lovers.
(For those just tuning in, Kordelm and Wellhym are warriors, captains at The Academy of the Accord, and they are lovers. Draethlen is a 10 year old cadet rescued from an orphanage where he was sexually abused by the headmaster.)
“Go on,” Wellhym said. “There’s more on your mind.”
“Why… If – if the two of you love men, then why haven’t you… why haven’t you made me…” He couldn’t seem to get the words out around the fear that gripped him.
“Why haven’t we made you do what the headmaster made you do?”
Draethlen nodded miserably.
“You know the answer to that, Drae. Tell me.”
