LMM 39: Lording it Over

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 for the one who’s rather more large.

Chapter Thirty-Nine: Lording it Over

Jacques backed into a wall and tried to climb it, only to realize that it was Deece.

Gingko arrived. “Really, Dad? You needed to do this now?”

Pale eyes narrowed familiarly, and Jacques swayed. Mon dieu. He’d known about Amaranthine taking animal form, but he’d never imagined… this.

On went Gingko. “The plan was allaying his fears, not multiplying them.”

The fox managed to look both haughty and unrepentant.

In other words, like himself.

And recognizing his master in the monster, Jacques mastered himself enough to ask, “Argent… you’re serving as my defense?”

Gingko snorted. “Not that you need it.”
