Rainbow Snippets meets the locals

Getting back into the swing of Rainbow Snippets this week, after taking a couple of weeks to hammer away at the current WIP. I’m still going (aaargh) but have finally reached the beginning of the end. Here’s six sentences in which Raif and Arden meet one of the minor spirits living in the city of Aliann…

The baker herself was a plump little woman with round cheeks and eyes as dark as currants.
Her Sharan was broken, but she talked warmly to Arden in a language Raif had never heard before. Arden translated quickly, saying, “She apologises for not speaking to you directly. She is no dragon, she says, to learn new tongues in the blink of an eye, and she has only been awake a few years.”
“Tell her I know quite well how irritating dragons are to the rest of us,” Raif said.
Arden clapped his hand to his heart and the baker laughed at him.

Rainbow Snippets is a wonderful little Facebook group in which writers gather every weekend to post a six-sentence peek at one of their works. All genres are included but the snippets must be from books with a LGBTQIA+ protagonist.
