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.
The wizards left and Wellhym smiled at Draethlen. “Well, go on, get dressed.”
“A—are you sure it’s all right? They don’t want me there.”
“But we do,” Kordelm said.
“The only reason they don’t want you there,” Wellhym said gently, “is because they don’t want to upset you. They are afraid that what is said might be difficult for you to hear, but they don’t know you as well as we do, they have no idea of your strength.”
“Besides,” Kordelm grinned. “If you don’t come along you’re just going to stay up until we get back and then make us stay up half the rest of the night telling you everything that was said.” He ruffled Draethlen’s hair. “Now get dressed or we’ll do it for you.”
Draethlen grinned. “Yes, sir!”
