Rainbow Snippet for 1-11-2020

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 that “Steampunk Thing.” The first draft isn’t done yet and I’m hoping that this will keep me motivated to keep at it.

(Apologies for any language usage that’s anachronistic. I’ll deal with that once the first draft is done.)

This picks up from last week.

“Are you free to start tomorrow morning?”

“Yes, Ma’am. Just tell me what time you want me to be here.”

“I’m not a stickler for time, Mr. McKelvy, just for quality. I’m usually here so come in any time and just call out and I’ll show you what needs to be done. I’ll get you a key to the office and once you know what to work on, just come in and start.”

I frowned slightly and she cocked her head. “Is something wrong?”

“No, ma’am, just…” I took a deep breath, wondering how it was that I felt so protective of her, having just met her and all. “The docks aren’t necessarily the safest place for a woman, especially after dark. Aren’t you worried about working here all alone?”

  1. Uh oh, I’m guessing she’s tired of hearing that question!

  2. It’s nice of him to be concerned. I like that.

    lol, I’m guessing she has a come back for that kind of remark! XD

    Okay, he obviously needs to stop with the stereotyping where she’s concerned before he gets thwacked on the head for it.

  5. I bet that’s something she’s been asked before, but it’s nice he’s concerned.

  6. I like that he’s concerned. Can’t wait for her answer
