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?”
“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.
