This week’s Rainbow Snippet is taken from my taboo story
Reaching the wall, I placed my hands on the damp stone and gripped it hard. I drew in a calming breath, prepared to leap back, frightened that something or someone would jump up and scare the life out of me. I peered into the gloom, giving my sight the chance to adjust to the darkness. Tree trunks and branches, undergrowth and smaller bushes came into view—nothing untoward.
I removed my suddenly cold hands from the wall.
A soft rustling drew my attention downward. A mouse or rabbit, I hoped, although I tensed again anyway. That eerie, uneasy feeling persisted.
Thank you for reading!

Rainbow Snippets is a group 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.
