Yesterday we drove to Berea, KY, and back to pick up our son from college for his winter break. It’s an eight-nine hour round trip so we’re tired today.
The Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook is “for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction– a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation. (no spoilers please!)”
Here’s another #RainbowSnippet* from Surrogate: Hunted, which will be unleashed upon the world in ebook format in February, 2018 from of Supposed Crimes. The hardback version will be available in March.
The Setup: I’ve picked up this week right where I left off. Brigit is convinced they’re about to be sent to the meat market.
Tip: Remember that Ytr, who speaks in this Snippet, is not a fluent speaker of any language that Etain and Brigit can understand so his words are choppy at best.
“I— I’m sorry.” Her eyes brimmed with tears. “I really screwed up.”
Etain hugged her god daughter to her. ‘Whatever happens we will face it together.”
“They’ve called the meat wagon back here!” Brigit’s eyes widened. “We’ll be dead by dark!” She stood then fell to her knees to hug Etain.
“Calm.” Ytr crouched in front of them. “House of Znyrs not turn away family.” He patted their heads and returned to the table where a deep sound rose from him. “What named?”
