LMM 113: Choose with Care

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.

Choose with Care

Jacques perked up. Lapis wasn’t the propositioning sort; he was too careful about the sway of his words. “For me?”

“I am seeking a place to sleep.”

Right. Amaranthine sleep patterns. “You need to… hibernate?”

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.”
