Rainbow Snippet for 3-20-2021

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. This picks up from last week’s snippet, in which Taliya filled Josul in on what’s been happening since she bought the ship.

“My mother and I had a falling out. Actually, I walked out and she told me not to come back.”

He waited.

“She sold Luz. She kept me away on business until Grandmother died and she could take over the House and then she sold Luz to an off-world slaver in a merchant fleet.”

“Oh, Tal…” Josul shook his head. “What are you going to do now?”

“Make a go of my own business and then contest her for the House.” There was an uncharacteristically hard edge to her voice. “But first,” she said with a sigh, “I have to be able to actually do cargo or charter runs.”

  1. I’m wincing with sympathy throughout this…at the last line in particular.

  2. Poor Taliya. She’s got her work cut out for her.

    Oh wow. Her mother sounds like quite a piece of work.

  4. Wow. Those are some low moves from her mother.

  5. Poor Taliya. Just from this I can’t stand her mother.
