Rainbow Snippets: Far from typical…

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.

The story of In Love and Death consists of rewriting the latter half of In Pain and Blood‘s old version, but also not.
With this story being set directly after the events of In Pain and Blood, some snippets will contain spoilers.

Following last week’s snippet…

Lullaby. A twinge of guilt tightened his chest, as it had done from the moment he had left the injured warhorse behind.

He had travelled far from Toptower since discovering Dylan in that border town. Every day thereafter had had taken him further still from any chance of reuniting with his horse. They hadn’t been separated this long before. Lullaby had to think himself abandoned by now. I will find a way. He just had to reach Whitemeadow first, to find a way to swallow the days stretching between him and that goal.

If we had a way to shorten the journey. That wasn’t possible. The standard trip on horseback would see them taking a week to reach the city, but their circumstance was far from typical in any sense of the word. He was on foot with a distressed spellster in tow, a belligerent mercenary in the group as well as potentially greater hostiles waiting ahead, and the possibility of other hounds being lured by the amount of magic used to set the spellster tower alight.

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