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.
Continuing from last week.
Hesitantly Brythel sat in the other chair. “Sh-should I call you ‘Master” or Captain’, sir?”
“That depends on whether I’m acting as a wizard or a Warrior, I suppose. So when we’re here call me Yhonshel.” He tilted his head. “What should I call you?”
“B-brythel, sir. My name is Brythel.”
“I’m pleased to meet you, Brythel.”
Yhonshel held out his hand and Brythel accepted it hesitantly, but as the Tuanae’s hand closed around his he felt a wave of comfort and safety and acceptance that nearly overwhelmed him.
“Shall we begin?” Yhonshel asked.
Brythel nodded, reluctantly letting go of his hand. “I – I don’t know where to start.”
“Start by getting your instrument out of its wrappings,” Yhonshel said. He glanced round the room and held out a hand and another lute left a table and floated to it.
“Is that magic?” Brythel asked. “What you did with the chairs and the lute?”
“It is indeed,” Yhonshel smiled. “Levitation spells.”
Brythel nodded, his mind whirling.
“What are you thinking?” Yhonshel asked gently.
Brythel flushed. “I just… I never thought magic was useful.”
