Rainbow Snippet: Just Our Luck

Well, it’s been a rough start to the year. I haven’t been able to get my meds because my insurance company doesn’t want to pay for them, even though I’ve been on this Rx for over two years now. It’s been very stressful trying to work this out. *sigh*

Anywho, it’s time for another Rainbow Snippets post. Those who participate in the Rainbow Snippets FB group try to post six sentences from a WIP, completed work, a book rec, etc, and then share it with the group. I’m attempting to be more active here!

So for today, I’d like to share a snippet from a work in progress called Just Our Luck about an unlucky wizard named Luca who tries his hand at a luck potion and accidentally summons a demon instead.

“I don’t want any trouble,” Luca finally said, voice trembling, mind flashing with all the terrible consequences that could happen from disrespecting a demon. “You can just…go. Please. I-I’m sorry for disturbing you.”

“But…aren’t you a Moore?”    

Even more confused, Luca shook his head. “What? I don’t understand. Am I more of what?”

“No, that’s not what I…” He glanced at the book again. “Are you not part of the Moore Family?”

“Um.” Luca had heard rumors about how unwise it was to share names with a demon, but that was just a rumor. Surely lying to a demon would be worse. “My family name is Antonelli.”

Demons, everyone knew, were liars, masters at manipulation, but Luca couldn’t imagine the pure naked fear that’d run across this demon’s face had been fake.
