My Rainbow Snippet this week comes from Code Name Jack Rabbit.
Bronwen held her palm out. “May I have the transmitter?” Blair handed it over. She spent a minute searching through her tote, finally pulling out fishing line. She wound it around the transmitter, stood up, switched the device on, and lobbed it into the water. “That should keep us from getting rammed.”
“Rammed by—” Forge reached out and grabbed Blair’s arm when the boat lurched to one side.
“It didn’t hit us,” Bronwen said. Smiling, she pointed at the water. There was a swell and a ripple, and the boat swung to one side. “There is a transmitter attached to that creature. Grier did that too, and I’m sure he wasn’t gentle about it.”
“There!” Lucas moved down the length of the boat and leaned over the rail. “Did you see that?”
A long form sliced through the water. As it breached the surface for a split second, it shone in the sunlight, a shimmering blue that changed to gray as it moved. Then it disappeared. Lucas could see by the way the water moved that at least part of the animal was still above water.
“Whoa!” Blair exclaimed, the fact he was on a boat apparently forgotten. He darted across the deck and stood beside Lucas.
Declan went to the bow and leaned over. Forge took up a position partway between him and Blair.
“There it goes.” Lucas pointed out the path the creature took.
“I don’t see it,” Blair said.
“It’s right there. It’s huge.” Lucas moved along the rail. “You can’t see it?”
“No.” Declan shook his head.
“Mr. Grier could see them through the water too,” Bronwen said.
“It must be something with the refraction of the water.” Lucas pulled his shirt and shorts off. “I’ve got to get a better look at this.”
