Rainbow Snippets: Disbelief of the dead…

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, thanks to a week of not being able to write, I’ve just finished chapter five of. 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 depictions of death/dying bother you, don’t read on.

Continuing on from last week…

His gaze settled on the blood-splattered face of an elven child. Blank eyes stared back, the mouth parted slightly in disbelief, the very same disbelief that continued to torment Henrie’s thoughts.

He had to get out before he joined the dead.

How? Getting beyond the tower walls might’ve been his goal, but how did he reach the entrance undetected? Every direction held the same potential. He peeked out into a hallway, straining to hear anything above the pounding in his chest. The screams from above prickled his skin no matter how hard he tried to block them out.

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