Rainbow Snippets: What harm?

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.

This month, we’re continuing the snippets from Tracking Trouble. It’s a prequel to In Pain and Blood starring Tracker, a King’s Hound from Demarn, who is also the elf responsible for the massive rewriting haul that has become the Spellster and the Hound series. Unlike a lot of my other stories, this isn’t a romance.

This week’s snippet continues from last week’s with Tracker having found himself surrounded by armed people who mean him ill…

Something about their movements stayed his hand. There was a wrongness to them. A fumbling he had come across in only the drunkest of those who dared to ambush him. Were his attackers limping? Were they perhaps wounded victims of this rogue spellster? He had read the reports of what this man had done. The piles of broken bodies he was responsible for.

“I only wanted safe passage aboard a ship,” the spellster said, pulling Tracker’s attention from the encroaching thugs. The man strode along the beam as effortlessly as if he walked upon the ground. “To leave this land and go where they would appreciate my abilities. How can you deny me this? What harm would it do to let me leave?”

Tracker will be back next week, and sticking around for a while after. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
