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.

“I’m sorry, Tommy. I should have listened to you.”
Tommy shook his head. “No time for that,” he said, his voice raspy as he tried not to cough. Coughing made Alex worry and feel guilty. “What do we do now?”
Alex shook his head. “I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t even know where we are.”
