Happy New Year and welcome to a new Rainbow Snippets post. If you’ve missed it, this is a lovely Facebook group which encourages writers to post six sentences from a current or past work every weekend.

He could not resist. Shaking, Iskandir took two steps forward and fell into the dragon’s embrace.
