LMM 14: Like a Kitten in a Tree

Lord Mettlebright’s Man

Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.)  Indulge the lot of us, especially for the one who’s chafing.

Chapter Fourteen: Like a Kitten in a Tree

“Come here.” Clawed hands were reaching, orange eyes pleading. “I will not hurt you.”

“I am hurt!” Jacques glared at Deece through tears, quite ready to clock him. “Am I so hateful? Am I to be driven out?”

The Amaranthine lowered his hands. “No?”

“Why have you never talked to me?”

Deece looked up, looked away, and finally looked back. “I am… shy?”
