LMM 121: Three Abed

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 susceptible one.

Three Abed

The ticklish trace of a finger woke Jacques. It wasn’t Lapis. The dragon lord was asleep in his arms as usual. Why was Hisoka drawing on his forehead? “You’re here, too?”

“So it would seem.”

Jacques asked, “Did you mean to be?”

“I let my guard slip. Never wise among dragons.”

“Too right.” Jacques checked his forehead.

“That sigil should allow you to slip away.”

A fine idea. But he couldn’t resist teasing. “You’re susceptible to dragons?”

“So it would seem.”

Since things couldn’t get much more personal, Jacques dared to ask, “Where do you go when you need sleep?”

  2. Great question Jacques! I think Hisoka trusts Michael to sleep next to. And he did with Tenma & The Starmark Clan in Kimiko’s book… So, is there somebody else extra special to be with? 😉 Curioser & curioser ❣
