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.
This picks up from last week.
“Please, just call me Anne. And I’m glad she finally hired someone so that maybe she’ll be home more often, doing things a lady ought.”
“I said help me, not replace me. You know I’ve never been one for sitting about like a porcelain doll.”
Anne sighed. “True enough. Now, come along and let’s get you presentable before dinner.”
“Mr. McKelvy needs to be introduced first, then I’ll let you fuss.”
“I’ll take care of that,” James said as he entered the room. “You two run along and get her spruced up before Mr. Madison gets too tired.”
That was enough to get my employer’s attention and she let Anne guide her to a back staircase, enduring the motherly lecture that she was receiving.
