LMM 29: Full Measure

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 the unprepared one.

Full Measure

Jacques stood there, stranded between opposing desires—to be allowed to flee the dragon or to be asked to stay by Argent.

Incomprehensible words were traded—sharp, shrewd—and the dragon seemed to be enjoying a victory until the fox took his revenge by taking back his baby.

Pushing Jacques into a wingback chair, Argent settled Kyrie in his arms.

“What happened?” Jacques hugged his shield.

“A difference of opinion. Lapis thinks me overprotective.”

“Of me?” That was a pleasant thought.

Argent brows lifted. “You have only dealt with his kind by halves. Are you ready to double the measure?”

  3. How did I miss 3 chapters? Oh I know…I was immersed in Unexpected and started Froth. I have plenty to read while you are rambling in writing land. I think Jacques is about to get more than bargained for. St least he has support.
