LMM 86: Dragging Feet

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 good memories.

The fox sat among the flowers, surrounded by swaying tails and a flock of… not butterflies. Jacques tried to track one’s flight path. Were those wings or fins?

Jacques stalled. But then he registered Argent’s silken, silver-trimmed finery.

Argent!” Outrage warbled through his boyish falsetto. “Mon dieu. Your pants!”
