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!).

Still posting from that “Steampunk Thing.” Picking up from last week, with Danny and James discussing Miss Victoria and her sister.
“Did the two of them get along as children?”
“Not as I’ve heard. Cecily was older when Miss Victoria was born, and until then she was the only granddaughter and she didn’t like sharing the attention.”
“I have to admit, I’m relieved to hear that she won’t likely be around much. I only saw her for a minute or two but didn’t much care for her.”
“If she does come around, watch yourself. She’s not to be trusted, that one.”
“Thank you for the warning. I don’t suppose I could set the dogs on her?”
James laughed. “It wouldn’t take much encouragement for them to go after her. They aren’t exactly fond of her, nor she of them.”
“I’ve always found animals to have a good sense about people.”
“Very true. I take it the dogs took to you?”
“I never knew they were there until Miss Madison introduced me to them. Roger slobbered on me and Thomas nearly knocked me over leaning against me for ear scratches.”
“Good. You’ll get on fine, then. Normally they’re a bit standoffish with strangers.”
“Seeing as I’ll be sleeping there, it’s a good thing they didn’t take a dislike to me.”
