LMM 44: The Seduction of Dragons

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 intimidating one.

The Seduction of Dragons

Jacques allowed Deece to usher him to where Sansa waited somewhere near Lapis’ hindquarters. “You are familiar with grooming, yes?” she asked briskly.

How should he answer? Did she know about last night? What did she think of her husband consorting with a person of his inclinations? “Yes, marm.”

“Dragons are wily, not easily contained.” She presented him with a green plastic pail. “But they can be seduced.”

Oil—warm and scented.

Sansa ordered, “Beguile him.”

Argent was suddenly there, rolling up his sleeves. Dipping his hand into the oil, he said, “Come, Smythe. We will subdue this dragon together.”

  1. I love watching them bring Jacques slowly into the fold! The constant reassurances and the conscientiousness of theme in regards to his feelings and fears leave a small warm spot inside ☺️☺️❤️
