Is she trying to read his thoughts? Read a snippet from TAYRYM #WeWriWa #GalacticDefenders #scifiromance #MMromance


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who came to visit me last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from TAYRYM, the fourth story in my Galactic Defenders series. Unlike the others before, TAYRYM is an MM romance.

Set-up: In last week's snippet, Gwenodyn learns what Tayrym is late for, but she still has so many questions for her best friend. We're getting closer to finding out Tayrym's secrets.... Enjoy!

“Oh, to get ready for your Defender training?” Her lower lip stuck out a bit as she moved to the side.

“Sure.” He didn’t want to tell her the true reason or listen to her whine about how much she’d miss him when he left. Not this morning.

She jumped in front of him. “You lie.”

Closing his eyes, he took a deep breath. “Stay out of my head, Gwen. Isn’t it unethical for Mingots to read minds without permission?”


Tayrym has dreamed of becoming a Galactic Defender since meeting the infamous Bryce when he was just a boy. Now an adult and awaiting the day cycle he is set to leave for training, Tayrym learns his long-time crush shares his affections. Now he's unsure whether he wants to leave, which dream matters more to him. 

With the threat of being sent away for his sexuality haunting him, Guri kept his feelings for his former classmate to himself. Even with a new progressive ruler on Hemera, he still hides his attraction to the young man. But when he catches the other shadowing him, Guri decides to take a chance. The only problem is, the man of his desire is leaving the planet soon. Possibly forever.

With obstacle after obstacle in their path, will Tayrym and Guri ever have a chance to be happy together? Or are they destined to fulfill their dreams light years apart?

COMING SOON!

  1. I'd think it's unethical for anyone to read minds without permission, as tempting as it is!

    1. Very true! But with their abilities, it's not always easy for them to block the strong thoughts of others. It's something Gwenodyn is still learning.

  2. It may be unethical, but without a paper trail, how can you prove the transgression?

  3. Ethics don't always come into it. There are times when reading minds just happens.

    1. Yes, exactly. Not everyone is good at keeping their internal thoughts hidden.

  4. Somebody just got busted! It would be so hard to have that ability and have to ask permission to use it. Great snippet!

  6. She speaks her mind and he's not pleased. Terrific scene and so life-like.

  7. But he basically just admitted she's right about him lying. Having a BF who reads mind would be very tricky indeed.

  8. Uh oh, I have a feeling the conversation will go downhill from here for them. A tense excerpt but definitely opens the door to a lot more plot! Great snippet...

  9. Thank you, Veronica! Not downhill, just a little more tense. πŸ˜‰

  11. I think he's a bit of an 'open book' to her! :)

  12. I can see how lying would be something big and easy to spot--some people have tells that even the nontelepathic can read. But she definitely needs to give him his privacy. I like their back and forth, I can feel the tension.

    1. Thanks so much, Caitlin! She knows things he doesn't know she knows. But she doesn't want to confront him. She's waiting for him to tell her.

  13. Yep, probably unethical but surely it would be difficult to control. Great tense snippet.
