Rainbow Snippet for 5-8-2021

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.

“…I wasn’t sure I could afford to hire anyone. And now I’m pretty sure I can’t.”

“What do you mean?”

“Almost all of my money is in my bank on Pendelia Four. I’m afraid they’ll trace a transfer.”

“Good point.” He thought for a moment. “I’ll tell you what. Let’s set up an account for you here on Lansigan Prime…”

“With what? All my money…”

“Let me finish.” He held up a hand and she fell silent. “Let’s do this. Give me a voucher from your bank. I’ll use my own money to start an account for you here and then I’ll take a trip to Pendelia Four to visit some old friends – and get my money back. It’s not really a loan so much as a transfer without involving anything traceable.”

Taliya stared at him. “I’m not sure if you’re brilliant or devious.”

“Yes.”
