Rainbow Snippets: If Dylan was here

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.

And the World Crumbled is my current work in progress that I’m halfway into. It’s a dark fantasy/horror novella set a few days before the end of In Pain and Blood and follows Henrie, an elven spellster, as he tries to escape the events happening around him.

It’s the darkest piece I’ve written to date. Lots of death, blood and general nastiness. If gore and mentions of death/dying bother you, don’t read on.

Continuing on from last week…

If Dylan was here

Biting back a sob, Henrie quashed the thought before it choked him with its slew of unattainable possibilities. There was so much his friend could’ve done. He could’ve healed the fatally wounded, could’ve fought these monsters with all the ferocity he’d shown in the brawl.

But Dylan was long gone. Dead. Along with the rest of the army. No more able to help than the bodies currently surrounding Henrie. He wasn’t even sure if his friend could’ve done it. No one else, guardian or spellster, seemed to have been able to touch their assailants as they moved from room to room, leaving only death in their wake.

And the World Crumbled will continue next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
