LMM 34: Have it Out

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 one who’s been drawn in.

Chapter Thirty-Four: Have it Out

Jacques stormed out, but Argent quickly found and cornered him. “I cannot give you what you want.”

“You don’t know what I want.”

“I do.” He cocked a brow. “I always have.”

Jacques colored. “That was before.”

Argent sniffed lightly, which was mortifying. Jacques tried to will himself calm.

“W-with you, I’m safe from the monsters.”

“What if I am a monster?”

“Not you.”

“I have lied to you. Repeatedly.”

“Not anymore,” Jacques staunchly declared.

“You are caught in a lie right now.”

Suddenly, the world tilted and shifted, and Jacques was standing on the seam between sand and sea.
