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 definitely kawaii.
Chapter Twenty-Seven: Fails to Meet Expectations
Jacques would have skipped breakfast if Tsumiko hadn’t found his hideaway and taken him by the hand. When she asked a question in Japanese—presumably about his presence in an upper-story linen cupboard—he picked through his scant vocabulary for a word of explanation. “Scary.”
She smiled and offered a slightly different word.
Had he bungled the pronunciation? Jacques tried again.
Tsumiko replied, “Not scary. Cute.”
In the kitchen, they found a beautiful person babbling and trilling over Kyrie. Hardly the thundering portent of death Jacques had been dreading.
Was it possible to fear dragons who indulged in baby talk?
