LMM 55: Done a Runner

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 asserts his dominance.

Lengthening his stride, Jacques made the corner of the house and kept running.
