LMM 131: Skinship

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 inviting one.


Tsumiko was serene, so Jacques gathered that there was nothing scandalous about the baring of buttocks.

Gingko went on paraphrasing. “Sounds like Timur—he’s twelve—went to ask Sansa for cloth. He also plans to—as you say—go native.”

“Akira.” Tsumiko beckoned her brother closer. “Jacques Smythe. Uncle Jackie.”

It was the barest of introductions, in more ways than one. But Jacques offered his hand, and Akira jubilantly seized it.

“You’re invited to swim,” relayed Gingko.

“He expects me to strip down?”

“Yeah, pretty sure he does.”

“Not without copious amounts of sunscreen.”

Gingko grinned. “That can be arranged.”
