Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers 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.
I’m busy with the first edit of To Poison a Prince, but I’ll still be posting bits of this story for a little while longer…
For those of you who are new or catching up… Darshan and Hamish are a pair of thirty-something princes from two vastly different lands. Their tale starts with them travelling through the ginormous Udynea Empire that Darshan is from on their way to the capital. In this piece, they are readying themselves for a soirée thrown by Darshan’s half-sister. We’re keeping it going from last week’s snippet.
Hamish glanced up as he finished fussing with the last toggle. “And I thought we agreed you wouldnae talk that way in public?”
Darshan spread his hands wide, gesturing to the entirety of the dressing room. Yes, he had most certainly agreed to spare Hamish his blushing in the presence of those who would use his husband’s easily flustered personality against him. However… “This is hardly public.”
The area might not have a bed or any other furniture to denote it as a place of intimate activities, but it was still part of his personal suite. They were free to be themselves within the confines of these walls and not have to worry about any act or word being used as fodder for those who meant the crown harm.
And there you have it. I’ll be back next weekend to share more of these two adorkable twits. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
