Rainbow Snippets: Letting sleeping spellsters lie…

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.

As I continue with In Love and Death, the story that consists of rewriting the latter half of In Pain and Blood‘s old version, I’m struck with how the outline for this story has grown vastly different to how it was. But nothing can top how the greatest change is that there’ll be an extra book to follow before the original tale is done.
With this story being set directly after the events of In Pain and Blood, some snippets will contain spoilers.

Following last week’s snippet…

Content that the area was safe for the moment, Tracker headed back to the middle of camp. He would check the perimeter again closer to the end of his time on watch, but it he doubted the act would be more than one of formality before he handed the task over to the next in the roster.

He frowned out into the heavy darkness lurking beneath the trees. Perhaps he should let the spellster sleep on. Being able to fully relax during the time others guarded their camp was more of a luxury for himself, whereas Dylan had spent a great deal of energy the morning gone not only in setting the spellster tower ablaze, but also in healing a stab wound that should’ve killed him.

The man rarely roused unless someone actually woke him. Far different to Tracker’s own lightly sleeping state, brought on by years of travelling with only his horse for company.

I’ll see you all with more from In Love and Death next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
