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 considerate one.
Chapter Ninety-Four: Feline Courtesies
Pushing unsteadily onto his knees, Jacques was knocked back by Gilen’s arrival. The half-tiger was happy and vaguely sticky. Jam? Syrup? What had he—and his dearly beloved suit—ever done to deserve this? Jacques tried not to make a face, but he may have whimpered.
Deece appeared at his side. “Invite him.”
Jacques obliged by switching to French. “You are invited.”
“Me?” Gilen’s cheeks went pink.
Extending a bouquet of something herbaceous—mint, perhaps—Deece said, “We must uphold feline tradition.”
“We?” Jacques echoed. “I’m no cat.”
“But you want to bathe.” Deece smiled faintly. “Let us groom you.”
