Rainbow Snippet for 7-4-2020

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.

Miss Madison 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

I glanced at James, who, being a good deal taller than I am, had a chance to perhaps see above the press of people around our employer. He seemed at ease with the situation and I tried to relax and follow his lead.

As we neared we could hear voices, angry and up in arms, with Miss Victoria’s voice soothing and calm, trying to put their fears – for that’s what I was hearing, I realized – to rest.

“Is there a problem, Miss Victoria?” James asked as we reached the edge of the crowd.

They parted a bit when they noticed us and I could see Miss Madison; she was unharmed but looked angry.

  2. I wonder what the problem is
