Late for his morning run. Read a #WeWriWa snippet from TAYRYM #GalacticDefenders #MMromance #scifiromance


Hello and welcome to my first Weekend Writing Warriors snippet from this blog! Sorry to all of you who went to visit me at my old blog last week, but weren't able to see my post. I know some of you caught it before my blog crashed. So, I've included last week's snippet from TAYRYM underneath this week's for those who didn't catch it, but still want to read it.

Set-up: In last week's snippet, Gwenodyn explained how she got in. Then Tayrym said he was late after realizing the time.... Enjoy!

“Late?” She shuffled back to stand in the doorway. “For what?”

“My morning run.” He pulled the clothing over his night shorts, not wanting to waste anymore time.

“Since when do you run?” Gwenodyn glared at him with her hands on her hips.

“I started two weeks ago.” He hoped that was enough of an explanation to get her out of the way so he could leave. Sure she was his best friend, but there were some aspects of his life he kept secret even from her.

From last weekend if you want to read it...

“How did you get in here?” His mom never would have let a girl in his room before he’d become an adult. Not that it would have mattered.

“Your mom was leaving for the market. She let me in and told me to wake you up.”

Market? It was that late in the morning already? “Cosmos! I’m late!” He scrambled off his bed and searched for a pair of pants and shirt to wear.


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. All will be revealed shortly. And they may not be as secret as Tayrym thinks. ;)

  4. Hmm, secrets certainly have a nasty way of coming out into the open - always better to be upfront to start with. (But then there wouldn't bea story I guess. :) )

    1. Tayrym only thinks they're secrets. But Gwenodyn will know everything before the end of the first chapter.

  6. Secrets kept from best friends are usually pretty painful. Hope she doesn't hold it against him when they are revealed.

    1. This one is big, but Tayrym has his reasons. Though when she does find out, her reaction surprises him.

  7. I hope she forgives him for keeping secrets. Best friends expect even the most personal stuff to be shared. Great snippets!

  8. I imagine he pulled his clothing over his night shorts also from a desire not to strip in front of her, right?

    1. Yes, that, too. Though he really is in a hurry.

  9. He's got plans he's not willing to share yet. Nothing wrong with that! I like the detail of him layering his clothes--such a guy thing to do.
