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.
Picking up from last week. Taliya has been talked into having dinner with her friend Belyn.
“Honey, what you need right now is to let go of that control and just… let go.”
She felt tears welling in her eyes. “Not yet, Bel. I know I need to, but just… not yet.”
“All right. Tonight, after dinner, at my place.”
“You do need a place to stay, don’t you?”
“Belyn, no. I can’t.”
“Of course you can. I won’t take no for an answer. See you at Curtey’s.”
Belyn cut the connection before she could reply and she laughed, shaking her head. She had known Belyn Weaver her entire life and she never had been able to say no to him and make it stick.
