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 still sharing snippets from In Pain and Blood, which is slated to be released Sept 15. The rewrite is a little light on the romance side and a touch darker in other parts.
This week’s snippet carries on from last week’s where Tracker found the city gates were shut.
From his placement atop his horse, Tracker was able to see right over the multitude blocking his path. It didn’t answer much.
The guards stationed around the entrance spoke with those at the front of the crowd. From the way they waved their arms, they were clearly giving people instructions to vacate the area.
Those stationed atop the wall paid no heed to the raucous below. Their attention was on something beyond the town walls. Could they see what Tracker felt? Human eyes weren’t capable of spying details from a distance and he knew there weren’t any elven guards. If it was obvious enough for them to spot, then something had gone terribly wrong.
He needed to get up there, but the crowd was thick. Moving through it would be practically impossible without using force.
This part will continue. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
