LMM 17: Wallowing in Ignorance

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 with tradition on his side.

Wallowing in Ignorance

“All right, there?” Michael remarked, “You’re very quiet.”

“I’m brilliant,” Jacques lied. “Why wouldn’t I be?”

“Deece is clearly concerned, and I trust his senses over my own.”

“I don’t understand.”

“Ask me anything.”

Jacques bit his lip so hard, it would be swollen. “I don’t even know what to ask.”

After a lengthy pause, Michael sighed. “Forgive me. I’ve been remiss in my role as reaver.”

This was getting old. “I don’t know a reaver’s role.”

“One role is that of host. Hospitality is our duty and delight.” Michael hugged him from behind. “Tonight, I’m extending it to you.”

  3. Putting myself in Jacques shoes, I would be having a very difficult time sifting through all my emotions. I love that he wants to belong and be accepted so badly, yet he is afraid to reach for it.
