Rainbow Snippet for 1-25-2020

rainbow logo 1

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, with Danny being introduced to his employer’s bodyguards.

The English mastiff rose and approached me, his great head nearly level with my chest and for a moment I had an uneasy vision of him ripping my heart out. Instead, he pressed his nose against me and took a deep breath, getting to know my scent.

“They won’t hurt you.” Her voice was tinged with amusement. “If they’d thought you were a threat you wouldn’t be standing here now.”

Moderately reassured I cautiously reached out and scratched behind his ears and was rewarded with slobbery tongue against my face.
