Rainbow Snippet for 10-13-2018

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.

A few minutes later the four of them were in the pool and Torlew pressed against Wellhym, trembling, needing…

“Shh…” Wellhym soothed, tangling his fingers in his wizard’s hair as he held him close. He, too, knew what Torlew needed, but it wasn’t sex.

Kordelm and Caristen gave them a few moments, and then joined them, and Torlew, surrounded by them, wrapped in the love and safety of his friends, finally broke down into sobs, releasing emotions he had been holding for far too long.

Slowly, brokenly, the story came out. The mistrust among the boys, the desperate loneliness, the injuries that the young ones sustained from the headmaster’s taking of them – injuries he could not heal without revealing himself – being forced to pleasure the headmaster with his mouth, taking on more than that to spare the others…

“Wel, I’m sorry,” he choked.  And Wellhym answered him with a kiss, long and slow and loving, and Torlew gave a final sob and leaned into him, the last of the tension draining from his body.

    So so tenderly and beautifully done. Heartbreaking for all the boys have gone through but so good that there is love there and friendship to get the, through
