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.
I had surgery a couple of weeks ago so this post was created ahead of time. Feel free to comment but please know I might be slow with my response.
This week we’re picking up where we left off in Chapter Three of Keeping House. Cent’s family has seen she’s protected for what lies ahead, something Dane finds… Well, see for yourself.
Note: The first paragraph, in orange, comes from last week’s snippet, and it’s Cent speaking.
“Sorry, not sorry to disappoint you, Dane.” She unfurled her wings and rolled her shoulders to shake them open.
“Just look at all them sigils.” Dane stomped her boots on the circle sands as she laughed, and her men laughed with her. “You look like a doodled-out scratch pad.” She removed her arm from her coat and rolled her sleeve above her bracer to show the sigils tattooed across her plaster-pale bicep. “All us Hunters got them, but ours won’t warsh off with a good scrubbin’, and neither will yours by the time you get back to Stowne.”
Laughter isn’t exactly the response Cent had hoped for when she revealed her tank top. So much for playing Dane.
