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 who embodies the prompt.

Chapter Seventy-Three: Intended Use

Mark helpfully explained, “An exchange of names—like the giving of a nickname—signifies the beginning of a bond. Posey is a good friend to have.”

Jacques turned to Gilen. “Should be befriend the brute, since he isn’t so terrible?”

The boy paused in licking his fingers, having finished all the canapes within reach. But his attention was nowhere near Hisoka.

An amused drawl came from behind. “Is star wine intended for humans?”

Jacques staggered forward and pressed a finger to Lapis’ mouth. “Do not say it isn’t,” he commanded fiercely. “I won’t believe such heresy.”
