LMM 156: Delicious

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 with his heart set.


Jacques turned his back on the scene of domestic harmony. “Are you going to tell me your name?”


“And why are you lurking about?”

He cast a sulky glance at the house. “I’m just a tagalong, stranded here for the festival’s duration.”


“Ever heard of Dichotomy Day?”


“Amaranthine festival, twice a year, culminates during the solstices. Suuzu had his heart set on spending this one with Akira, and my partner’s his own special brand of helicopter brother.”

So he had a male pronoun kind of partner? But they were hiding it? “How delicious. You’re a secret paramour?”

  2. I love that Jacques decided to reside in Stately House (in part) to evade dragons and, in the end, he’s so comfy with them. Sweet irony 💞
