LMM 45: Steady On

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 lost the skies.

Steady On

Jacques’ fingertips lightly grazed the dragon’s scales.

Beside him, Argent showed no such delicacy. “Put your back into it, Smythe. He is far from fragile.”

He cautiously pressed against their azure iridescence.

“Both hands,” urged Argent.

Jacques reluctantly mirrored his motions.

When the dragon warbled, Jacques leapt back. But Argent chuckled and kneaded harder. However, they soon reached one of the wings that dragged limply in the sand.

“No cutting corners.” Argent gently pulled and straightened.

Something was wrong with them, but Jacques knew better than to ask.

Argent answered anyhow. “They have become too heavy for Lapis to lift.”
