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 one who has (almost) everything he needs.

“Watch them. Watch over them,” repeated Argent. “You and I can discuss the matter later, since you are no longer at Mossberne’s beck and call.”
“If I survive this.” Jacques tried to hide the fundoshi behind his back.
Argent smirked but only asked, “Do you require anything else?”
“Like a proper bathing costume?”
Argent blandly suggested, “I could send Deece.”
“Oh!” Jacques held up four fingers. “Would you be so good?”
