Rainbow Snippet for 3-21-2020

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.

“She said I should know what I’m getting myself into?” I asked cautiously. I didn’t want him to think I was prying for information.

He laughed. “She did make it sound rather dire, didn’t she?” He shook his head. “We’re… an odd bunch. You’ll learn soon enough that Miss Victoria is not a classist. Oh, she can be formal and upper crust when the occasion calls for it, although she tries to avoid those occasions. Her grandfather’s not been doing well, but feels up to dressing for dinner tonight or else she’d be eating with the servants.”

Eating with the servants? I turned that over in my mind. Granted, I didn’t know all that much about how the upper class conducted things in their households but I was fairly sure that something like that was unheard of to the point of being scandalous.

But at least the mention of her granda solved the mystery of her marital status. She was most likely taking care of him in his old age, something that might put off potential suitors.
