LMM 32: Devilishly Unfair

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 trustworthy one.

Devilishly Unfair

Quite sure he was playing with fire, Jacques dared to question Lord Mossberne. “Are you dangerous?”


Heady relief washed over Jacques, for it must be true. This was wonderful! He should be grateful. He should be glad.

“He is dangerous,” countered Argent.

Jacques fidgeted under a critical gaze. Should he believe the monster who was telling him what he wanted to hear? Or the master who was raising a terrible possibility that Jacques didn’t want to believe? This was devilishly unfair.

The dragon lord drawled, “Argent! I am no more dangerous than you are.”

Argent pointed at Lapis. “Precisely.”
