LMM 163: Permission to Engage

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 impressive stamina.

Permission to Engage

“May I take Deece into our confidence with regards to Sinder’s presence.”

Argent’s brows lifted. “What did you have in mind?”

Jacques innocently answered, “I don’t have the stamina to satisfy Sinder’s every need.”

His lord huffed. “You do this on purpose.”

“Every time.”

Argent asked, “Why Deece?”

Honesty, then. “He’s big and bulky and brave, and I really couldn’t manage without him. I can’t see in the dark.”

“Very well.”

Jacques breathed easier. “Make sure all the sneaks are abed.”

“What are you going to do?”

“Only what must be done.” Jacques smirked. “We’re going to wear him out.”
