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.
“Good morning!” Kordelm said cheerfully as they entered the barracks, seemingly oblivious to the fact that Caristen suddenly looked like he wanted to murder him.
“Obnoxious jack,” he muttered. “I swear he thrives on no sleep.”
Wellhym chuckled and gave his shoulder a brief squeeze. “Kord’s only a morning person if he sees dawn from the night side,” he agreed.
Draethlen had risen when they entered and Kordelm gave him a wink. “Ready for breakfast?” he asked.
“Yes, sir.” Draethlen smiled uncertainly at them and Torlew touched his shoulder gently.
“I needed to be with my Warder last night,” he said softly. “And with my friends.” He held Draethlen’s gaze for a long moment. “When you and Sen have spent more time together,” he said, “you’ll understand it better, but Warders… Warders know what their wizards need. Usually better than the wizard does.”
“That’s true,” Caristen agreed. “And sometimes they even know what other people’s wizards need.”
“You are my wizard,” Wellhym said. “As much as Tor is. Well, almost as much as Tor is.”
“Mine,” Kordelm growled, pushing between Wellhym and Caristen as they laughed.
