LMM 148: Incentivized

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 plays games.


Gingko immediately inducted the lot of them. “Michael wards our beach against sea monsters and sharks, but everyone who lives at Stately House needs to be a strong swimmer.”

“What if we don’t want lessons?” challenged Nonny.

“You’ll miss out on all the best games if you don’t,” returned Gingko.

There was a muddle of questions and translation, with Timur and Suuzu proving their multilingual prowess. Jacques kept Gilen in the loop, but he couldn’t say what games Gingko meant.

With a sly smile, Ginkgo suggested, “Akira, show us the one you were telling me about earlier?”

Tsumiko’s brother grinned.
