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 favorite uncle.
Chapter Sixty-Five: Surely Not
Jacques needed a moment to unfreeze, then scuttled into the settee’s corner.

“That Twineshaft fellow. The one with the Japanese name.”

With the very same smile he used to great effect during television interviews, Spokesperson Twineshaft simply sidestepped the question. “Hold out your arms.”
