Rainbow Snippet for 8-1-2020

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.

“I got the impression that Anne* didn’t exactly approve,” I said cautiously and James laughed.

“Anne has her own definition of “lady” and Miss Victoria doesn’t fit it at all.” He sobered. “She came to us from Miss Victoria’s mother’s family, as neither her father nor grandfather saw the need for a governess or a lady’s maid. Her mother’s side, however, wanted to try to ‘make a proper lady of her’ which is odd considering they don’t want to have anything to do with her.”

“That’s sad,” I murmured. “Family should be there for each other.”

“No argument there,” he agreed. “But what should be and what is aren’t always one and the same.”

 

*Anne is the maid we met several installments back.
