LMM 108: To Each Their Own

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 wants to be more than friends.

To Each Their Own

“Do you mean to say that you respect me?”

“Really, Smythe. If you are going to be my man, you should pay closer attention.”

Jacques pouted. “Nobody pays closer attention to you than I do!”

Argent sighed. “I did not mean to say anything. I said it. Why doubt me?”

“You’re not this nice.”

“And yet I have your trust, your respect, and your devotion.” Argent stiffly added, “Your utter refusal to be intimidated by me is… rare.”

“That makes us unique. Exclusive.” Jacques proudly tapped his chest. “I’m your one and only man.”

“A claim I intend to formalize.”
