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 safe one.
Changing of the Guard
Taking Hisoka’s place, Jacques watched with fascination as Lapis whiffled and grumbled and patted around. “He knows I’m here?” he whispered.
“Yes, certainly!” assured Michael. “Sleep comes in stages. Lapis is still nominally aware of his surroundings.”
Knuckles bumped. Claws hooked. And in one sinuous slide, the dragon lord laid claim to his new bedmate.
Michael chuckled. “On some level, he’s been waiting for you.”
Arms locked around his waist, and Jacques kept his hands well away from temptation.
“It’s all right, Jacques.” Michael gestured encouragingly. “Your touch, like your presence, will reassure him that it’s safe to go deep.”
