LMM 115: Upper Story

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 cuddler.

Upper Story

When Michael escorted Jacques to a dull doorway, everything looked normal enough. “Are there wards?”

“In overlapping layers. We all contributed—me, Sensei, Argent, and Lapis himself.” Michael reached for Jacques’ hand and winked.

The entire hallway bloomed into etched lightning.

“Lord. Is it dangerous?”

“Not at all. We’re simply making certain Lapis won’t be interrupted.”

Inside, Hisoka Twineshaft propped against the headboard of a four-poster bed, calmly reading a paperback while Lapis Mossberne cuddled against his thigh. Jacques felt like a stranger, an intruder on Amaranthine intimacies.

But he also felt left out.

“Here, now! You started without me?”
