I’ve ten million things to do, and not enough time to get it all accomplished, but isn’t that life? Actually, I’ll be offline quite a bit for the next few weeks, recouping from knee replacement surgery. Surely, I’ll be around some, but I’ve created a number of posts ahead of time to make things easier. Next week will be the first of four such posts.
Hi, and welcome to #Rainbowsnippets*! This one is uniquely mine, but there are lots of other great snippets to read so after you finish here click the FB link at the bottom of the post to discover other great LGBTQIA authors and their works.
This week I’m jumping ahead a few paragraphs in Chapter Three of Keeping House. Cent and Stowne have enjoyed a final dance together, but now it’s time for them to part ways.
Note: The portion in orange comes from last week’s snippet.
Yes, it is time. Stowne pulled Cent into a lingering kiss then set her beside them, turning to Dane. “Three months. No more. She returns—”
“In one piece and on Beltane. Got it.” Dane crossed the sands to bow before Stowne. “Your land. My kind. We’ll always be indebted to you for your grace. So on so forth, diplomatic BS. Curtsies, bows, and all that-there crap.” She held her hand out to Cent. “Come on, girlie. It’s half-past time to get goin’.”
Dane’s a little overly happy about the current situation, don’t you think? What does she know that Cent doesn’t?
