LMM 53: First Come, First Served

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 cuts an imposing figure.

First Come, First Served

For her growl, since she rumbled like a volcano on the verge of disaster. And for her first deed, which was to thrust a gangly child into his arms.

“Take this one. Least likely to bite. Argent!”

Jacques gaped at Adoonah-soh, then risked a peek at the closer threat. Blue eyes blinked fearfully from under a thatch of dun hair. Surprise silenced him, if only for a moment.

“Lord. Are you aware that you have horns?”
