LMM 145: If I Were Amaranthine…

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 good cat.

If I Were Amaranthine…

Touch was a reassuring part of feline culture. Jacques decided it might also be an important part of Jacques culture. “Would I make a good cat?”

“No.” There was a smile in Deece’s voice. “You are too disobedient.”

Jacques sniffed. “What do you think, Gilen?”


Amused, Jacques translated. “A peacock?”

“You do preen,” muttered Nonny.

“A mink?” suggested Raife.

“Butterflies are pretty,” said Mori.

Jacques smirked. “You think I’m pretty?”

Nonny blobbed lotion on Jacques’ nose. “You think you’re pretty.”

“Miss a spot, and he will burn,” warned Deece.

Thus, the joint application of copious amounts of sunscreen continued.

  2. With all these “chicks” around, I can’t help but see him as a daddy penguin–complete with fancy tux.
    This scene is so adorable. You’ve made these characters so lovable! 😍

  4. Oh how funny! They all have him pegged! He is quite a mixture, our Jacques. But I do lean towards peacock.

    I love the idea of a quiz. Such fun.
