Rainbow Snippet for 9-15-2018

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.

Continuing from last week.  Caristen and Torlew have been away with Marsden, taking care of the headmaster of the orphanage that Draethlen came from, and have just returned to the school – and woke everyone up.

Caristen nodded wearily. “Anyhow, get dressed you two. We’re to take you to Vinadi’s office for a full debriefing.”

They nodded and turned to pick up their swords.

“Drae, put your sword down, they’re friends,” Wellhym chuckled, and the boy started, blushing as he realized that it was still in his hands.

“And get dressed,” Kordelm said, “unless you want to cross the grounds dressed like that.”

“Kord,” Caristen started, but both warriors rounded on him.

“He has more right to know what happened than any of us,” Wellhym said, his normally soft voice full of fire, his stance daring either of them to challenge him.

  1. Powerfully intense moment, only to be softened by a moment of humor, right before it regains its tension…well done!

  2. I like how Wellhym is drawing a line between protection and over-protection. ♡

  4. Ooooh. Love that final paragraph!
