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 brazened his way in and refused to leave.
Chapter Fifty-Two: Eve of Descent
Gingko hauled Jacques through the newly renovated rooms above the kitchen. “Nice, right?”
Nursery. Naproom. Dormitory. Classroom.
The tour continued through a suite of rooms with its own staircase. Gingko guided him down and out into a walled garden. “For the mares.”
“The what now?”
“Healers from the horse clans. They’ll help Tsumiko with the little ones.”
“This is all so sudden,” Jacques protested.
Gingko took him by the shoulders. Jacques found a soupcon of comfort in the connection, but none in his words.
“You were sudden. This has been the plan for months.” Gingko warned, “First drop arrives tomorrow.”
