LMM 43: There Was Purring

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 enjoys being the center of attention.

There Was Purring

Deece reached back and soothed, “Take your time.”

As if this was all about dragons anymore. As if Jacques was still in the middle of the mother of all meltdowns. “I need a word.”

Drawing apart by a few paces, Deece asked, “What do you want?”

“Forgiveness, I think.” Jacques stiffly added, “I’ve imposed on you in the manner of rakes and cads.”


“Your blaze. You didn’t say anything.”

“Oh.” Deece offered a small shrug. “Your pleasure was innocent.”

Jacques supposed that summed up everything about the previous night.

“And… we felines enjoy attention. Almost as much as dragons.”

  3. You know, I am usually a few chapters ahead on this story. Which makes it much easier to post a daily update. EXCEPT for those days when I *forget* to update.

    …I could have been an absent-minded professor if my path had taken a different track. Eheh.
