Rainbow Snippet for 12-8-2018

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.

Picking up from last week’s snippet from Book 5.5 of the Academy of the Accord series.

“Do you know what you just signed?” Wellhym asked, holding the boy’s gaze.

“A contract.”

“But you have no idea what it says?”

“N-no, sir.” Drehmus was suddenly suspecting a trap as the Captains smiled.

“So, for all you know, you’ve just agreed to shine boots for everyone in the garrison during your free time from now until you graduate.”

There was some laughter as Drehmus flushed. Wellhym chuckled as he folded the paper and tucked it inside his shirt as he stood up.

“And that,” Kordelm said, “is why warriors should know how to read and write. And do basic arithmetic,” he added. “Otherwise, how will you know if your pay is correct, or if you get the proper amount of coin returned when you buy something?”

  1. Oh ho, that’s quite the lesson! 🙂

  2. Excellent lesson. I feel blessed to have grown up in the era I did. ~nods~ I’m horrified that cursive writing has fallen away. Thank you for sharing and Happy Writing!
