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 for the one who has a way with words.

Lapis smiled. “Deep rest leave us vulnerable, so few like retiring alone.” He intentionally phrased every sentence in ways that left Jacques a choice. “Argent has allowed me to request your attendance.”
“I can’t stay awake that long.”
“Neither can Hisoka remain closeted for the duration. You and he could share the burden I will become.” Lapis studied his gem-studded manicure. “I have prepared enticements.”
