Rainbow Snippet for 8-25-2018

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.

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 woke to find two intruders in the barracks.


“Captains!” he shouted, sitting up and reaching for his sword, his heart pounding. “Intruders!”

“Shh, Draethlen, it’s just us.”

One of the figures moved his hands and a ball of light materialized, illuminating familiar faces: Torlew and Caristen. They looked tired, but unhurt, and he relaxed, looking behind them.

“Marsden’s fine,” Caristen assured him. “He’s reporting to Vinadi.”

Draethlen nodded just as Wellhym and Kordelm burst out of their office in response to his call, their swords drawn.

Torlew looked at the three drawn swords facing them and turned to Caristen. “I don’t know about you, Cair, but I was expecting a warmer welcome than this.”

    LOL, well, to be fair, I wouldn’t be all that warm if I was woken with a fright over intruders. They might give him a minute to recover.

  2. Surely they can’t be too shocked at getting this kind of welcome, considering the time of day and all.

  3. I’m with Ed. ~nods~ Thank you for sharing. Happy Writing!


  4. Ha! Good to know they had his back even though it wasn’t needed in the end. 💖

  5. When you come in late into a military barracks facility, that sort of welcome should be expected.
