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.
Chapter Fifty-Three: First Come, First Served
When Jacques opened the door to Adoonah-soh Elderbough, he was unprepared on three levels. For her size, because the spokesperson for the wolves towered. 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?”
