Gwenodyn tries to figure out who Tayrym has the hots for. #WeWriWa snippet from TAYRYM #GalacticDefenders #scifiromance #MMromance


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who came to visit me last weekend! I received my edits for Tayrym earlier in the week. I've been working on them, so this story is one step closer to being published.  

Set-up: In last week's snippet, Tayrym confessed his secret though Gwenodyn already knew. I'm skipping ahead a bit to where they are both watching the kickball game. Enjoy!

She sat on the very front bench and leaned forward, examining all the players. “So, let me figure out which one you have the hots for.”

Gwenodyn might as well have thrown him onto the field with that statement. He wanted to run and hide. Thank goodness most of the players were at the other end.

She nudged him. “I can eliminate one already. The guy who’s the net minder at this end is one of our teachers. If it were him, you’d find ways to stay after school instead of coming here.”

Yes, same with the other teacher who wasn't there today and didn’t show up to play as often as the rest of them.

Tayrym has dreamed of becoming a Galactic Defender since meeting the infamous Bryce when he was just a boy. Finally 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.

With the threat of being sent away for his sexuality haunting him, Guri keeps 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'm curious about her motivation. She said she'd known for awhile he was gay, and suddenly she almost teasing him about his preference in men. That could mean a lot of different things.

    1. Teasing him as friends do. She's simply giddy because she can talk to him about it, and doesn't have to pretend she doesn't know anymore. It would be hard to keep that information inside for that long.

  2. I'm with Ed on this one! But a smooth snippet as always...

    1. I tease my daughter in the same way. And I've seen her friends do it to her, and her to them. Simply a friendship thing with no ulterior motive. :)

  8. A nice, natural bit of banter between these two - he must be releived he can finally talk freely to someone.

  10. Seamlessly written. She's no shrinking violet, is she? I bet Tayrym is glad she's a friend and not an enemy!

    1. It's going to take him a bit to grasp that things are different now. But, this isn't the only change in his life. There is so much more about to happen. πŸ˜‰
