LMM 143: To Be Asked

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’s done what few do.

Raife of the unfortunate hair seemed wary about the dress code. Smart lad.

Jacques indicated the pile of fundoshi and urged, “Pick a color!”

“Argent said you asked for them.” Deece was practically purring with approval. “Thank you.”
