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 legend in the making.
Chapter Eighty: Japanese to English to French
Staying was more involved than Jacques expected. And more immediate. Wedged between Gingko and Gilen, he helped relay Argent’s bedtime story to a homesick little boy.

A fox and his lady.
A den and its protection.
A home and its blessings.

Slinging an arm around his shoulders, Gingko said, “Maybe later.”
