LMM 71: Argent Wants You

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 with an appetite.

The boy retreated long enough to let him up, only to reaffix himself most ardently. Jacques offered the goblet of milk to Gilen, clinking it with his own. “Cheers.”
