LMM 150: Longest Flight

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 finally gets around to it.

Longest Flight

As sunset neared, Michael and Sansa came down to the beach.

Roughing hair.

Cupping cheeks.

Wrapping towels.

Listening ears.

Each gathered up a weary boy. Gingko and Suuzu, too. Carrying the blissfully limp crossers up the long flight of stairs home.

Jacques whispered, “Did they have homes before?”

“Probably,” said Deece. “Probably not like this.”

He chuckled at the sight of Timur manfully piggybacking Akira. Good lads, both of them.

Suddenly, Deece scooped him up. “Here, now! Non, non, non! I’ll manage.”

“Let me.”

Jacques wrinkled his nose, which felt burnt. “Why should I?”

Deece mumbled, “Because… I missed you.”

  2. ❤️😭❤️😭❤️ I can’ handle all this cast of characters and their obvious delight and (eventual) comfort in each other’s presence… This found family is one of my favorites and I don’t think they’ll ever stop melting my heart ❤️❤️❤️
