LMM 116: Lavish Provisions

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 sleepy one.

Lavish Provisions

Michael laughed outright. “I told you we should have roused him and tucked them in together.”

“Did you?” inquired Hisoka, turning a page.

“I’m sure I did.” Michael teased, gesturing toward provisions heaped on the bureau. “All the little loving touches are from Lapis.”

Expensive chocolates. Tea things. Tinned biscuits. High-end bento boxes. And a sparkling decanter. “Is this…?”

“Starwine,” Michael confirmed.

Jacques hid his pleasure by perusing a teetering stack of books. “Lord Mossberne reads romance novels?”

Hisoka smiled. “I speak for the cat clans, Mister Smythe. Not for Lapis. Save questions of a personal nature until he wakes.”
