LMM 95: Uncles and Nephews

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 honorary one.

Uncles and Nephews

Jacques supposed he was there to translate. Or because of the arrangement with Gilen’s human father. An honorary uncle. Yes. Quite.

“ … try it with Deece.” After a lengthy pause, Hisoka’s hands stilled. “Jacques?”


Sensei will do. Are you all right?”

Jacques gripped his knees. “This is highly irregular.”

“Gilen needs to learn this part of his heritage.” Hisoka smiled charmingly. “Nephews emulating uncles. What could be more natural?”

Jacques shot a pleading look at Deece, who’d submitted to Gilen’s tentative kneading with purring patience.

And so the lesson continued apace, with Hisoka slipping effortlessly into French. The beast.
