Rainbow Snippet for 6-27-2020

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.

 

“Will she be all right back there with the carriage? This isn’t safest neighborhood.”

“She’ll be fine,” he assured me. “She can hold her own and we’re not so far away that we can’t get there to help her if we’re needed.”

It didn’t take us long to get my sodden belongings gathered up into soggy bundles;  the couple of pots and pans and few dishes and such that I owned were wrapped up in them as well. My other belongings – a few books and pictures – had been spared the worst of it so I took off my coat to wrap them in for the trip to the carriage where Miss Victoria was waiting for us, surrounded by a small crowd of locals.

The sight made my stomach clench a bit and I felt my muscles tense up; the crowd seemed a bit agitated.

  1. I think I’ve felt a similar tension at the sight of such a crowd…

  2. Uh oh! Crowds give me the willies this year.
