Rainbow Snippet for 7-11-2020

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.

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

“Yes, there’s a problem,” she said. “This.” She shook the newspaper she was holding, the very one that had the article in it about the upcoming demise of the neighborhood. “Where are all these people going to go when they tear down their homes and businesses? Did no one think this through when they made the decision to demolish everything?”

I looked at James, not sure what to make of this side of my employer, who, until now, and been calm and relaxed, with a sense of humor and fun lurking just beneath the surface. He gave me a long suffering look which lead me to believe that this was something I’d just have to get used to about her.

Thrusting the paper at one of the men near her she joined the two of us. “Something needs to be done,” she said, and even I could identify the stubborn tone of voice and set of her jaw.
