LMM 162: Expectations Vary

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 a very short list.

Expectations Vary

Jacques’ list of enjoyable diversions that two could share was both short and inappropriate. A second opinion was required.   

He found Suuzu and Akira first. They’d curled together on a sofa while Suuzu attempted to rearrange every wisp of Akira’s hair.

“You two!” Jacques blurted. “What do you do for fun?”

Suuzu answered in English. “He is human. I am Amaranthine. Expectations vary.”

“You then.”

“I find this relaxing, so he permits it.”

Scintillating. “Do you ever get restless?”

“I am avian, monsieur.” Suuzu smiled faintly. “If I am caged for too long, all I want to do is fly.”
