Rainbow Snippet for 2-27-2021

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.

Taliya has bought a used space ship, had a few (mis)adventures with it, and has gone to look up an old friend from school for help.

“Yes, me.”

“What did you do?”

“I bought a ship.”


She shook her head. “I bought it from a reputable dealer. Vastyne’s. The night I took possession, Vastyne’s was blown up. I was questioned and my ship was searched. They found nothing and let me go. I made a shipping run and on the way back I was fired on by an unknown ship. Later I was contacted by Gilles Staunton, who apologized for the ‘misunderstanding’ of one of his ships firing on me. He then offered to buy my ship, but wouldn’t say why. I was going to go the Pendelia Four officials about it, but when I went to meet them they were talking to Gilles Staunton – and seemed very chummy. And the berth I was to set down in was surrounded by armed military craft. And it’s gotten worse from there.”

  2. Yikes. Nothing good happening there.
