Gwenodyn finally reveals who Tayrym is crushing on. 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! TAYRYM, the fourth Galactic Defenders story will release October 29, and is available for pre-order. 

Set-up: In last week's snippet, Gwenodyn was so close to guessing who Tayrym was crushing on. But then something interrupted her. It's was a ball rocketing toward them. And Gwenodyn dove in front of Tayrym to catch it. Let's continue from there.... Enjoy! (wonky punctuation edited from original to make it fit)

“Fornax Raw, what was that for?” Sol, the net minder-teacher, called to the other player on his team.

Guri shrugged in response, his gaze on Tayrym; or maybe Gwenodyn; most likely her. Tayrym didn’t stand a chance.

The one Gwenodyn had said danced across the field ran over to them to collect the ball and bowed. “Sorry about that, Princess.” Once he threw the ball back onto the field, play resumed.


“Well, I wasn’t sure before, but now I’m positive you like the guy who kicked the ball right at your head, though, after that, I’m not sure why.” She pinched his cheek. “He could have ruined your beautiful face.”


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?

  8. Kicking a ball at someone isn't an absolute no to a possible relationship. Maybe he was just distracted by Tayrym's pretty face? ;)

    1. Hehe. Yes, but since we're not in his POV, we don't know that he was trying to score another goal when he kicked the ball. But Tayrym distracted him. 😉

  10. Intriguing snippet. Is she right and if she is, does she suspect the guy who kicked the ball might be interested in her friend as well? I'm curious to know.

    1. She knows a lot more than she's revealing to Tayrym. But, that is revealed in the next part of this scene.
