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 the spellster asking “What harm would it do to let me leave?”
Tracker had heard the same questions from so many. He had only ever met one man he considered as safe in the society the spellster had chosen. And that man, along with the mercenary company protecting him, had long since left Demarn. For many, there was no way for spellsters to remain amongst ordinary people without risking lives. Whereas others… “You know what harm your presence has already caused.”
The spellster spread his hands wide. His fingers seemed oddly curled, like a street puppeteer. “So what if a few guards disappear? Happens all the time.”
Tracker will be back next week, and sticking around for a while after. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
