LMM 154: Unconfined to Quarters

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 noteworthy one.

Unconfined to Quarters

“I’m not supposed to be seen.”

Jacques wasn’t impressed. “You’re sitting in plain sight.”

Hiding in plain sight. It’s surprisingly effective for someone like me. Say, what tipped you off?”

“Green.” He gestured with his coffee cup. “Your hair.”

“You like this color?”

Naturellement. A sprightly green does good things for my complexion.”

“That’ll do it. I once got spotted because someone was a fan of the band on my T-shirt.” The dragon’s attention drifted. “I’m officially confined to quarters. So boring.”

Jacques followed his gaze downward. Should he be worried that Hisoka’s dragon was spying on Stately House’s lord?

    • It’s gotta be some kind of magic. Maybe just a super subtle ‘don’t look at me’ spell that only works if you aren’t fighting it. Something interesting oh him could cause the fighting. Just a guess though. 😂
