LMM 35: Face Your Monsters

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 still has nightmares.

Chapter Thirty-Five: Face Your Monsters

This is what Lapis meant. Dragons lie with words. Foxes use illusions.”

Jacques had been inside, yet suddenly, he was ankle-deep in waves. “This is a lie?”

“This is real enough,” said Argent. “Though you may think it a nightmare.”

He tugged at soggy pantlegs. “Because you’ve ruined my favorite shoes.”

“Because this is the truth.”

Jacques turned and immediately shied away from the sight of a basking dragon. “Show me a lie instead. You lie beautifully.”

“Most would consider Lapis beautiful. Especially up close.”

“I don’t want to get closer.”

“I know.” Argent offered his hand. “Neither do I.”
