Tayrym and Guri have their first date ~ 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 this Monday, and is available for pre-order. 

Set-up: In last week's snippet, Gwenodyn finally revealed who Tayrym was crushing on. I'm going to skip ahead quite a bit now to half-way through chapter two, when Tayrym and Guri are on their first "date," for which Tayrym showed up late for. He did have a good excuse though. He was helping his mother at the palace. If you want to catch up on chapter one, you can find it on my blog in various sections.


Outside, kitchers chirped all around and tappies peeped as they flew overhead. He found his date sitting on a blanket with his legs out in front of him, four lit torches around the edge providing a faint amount of light. “You planned this?”

Guri shrugged. “I was planning to watch the sunset with you, but....”

“I’m so sorry.” He’d ruined their night before it had even begun. Maybe he should have gone home instead.

“It’s okay.” Guri reached up for him. 

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?

  7. Well, first dates to tend to be a little awkward, sounds like he's been forgiven for his lateness though.

  8. If his date is still waiting, the date is probably not ruined. Especially if he manages to be charming!
