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 likes to be clear.
Chapter One Hundred Four: The Catch
“You are remarkably unremarkable.”
Jacques dragged his attention from all the down. “Was that compliment or criticism?”
Argent shook his head. “An ordinary human—unendowed, unintiated. Yet unconcerned by species.”
“We’re making lists? You left out unrequited.”
He tutted. “You flung yourself at us, heedless of consequences. Without invitation. Without encouragement. Without pay.”
“Money is no object,” Jacques grumbled.
“I was your object. Not that you had any hope of catching me.”
Jacques snorted. “That’s what unrequited means.”
“My lady calls your arrival a leap of faith. Which has led to a remarkable reversal.” Argent’s expression warmed. “We caught you.”
