LMM 175: Entrancing

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 foxy one.


Jacques gaped at the six-winged creature rubbing its dainty snout against Sinder’s knuckle and creaking like an orchestra of happy crickets.

Meanwhile, Argent explained, “Here—more than any other place—privacy is assured. Until I am able to make similar arrangements in a neutral location, we meet here.”

“Prettiest outpost I’ve ever seen,” said Sinder.

“This is my sanctuary.” Without a trace of apology, he warned, “You cannot return unassisted.”

Sinder smirked. “How foxy.”

Argent’s hand dropped onto Jacques’ shoulder as he added, “Except you.”

Jacques really needed to stop gaping.

No small feat in a world filled with wonders.

    • Hmm. The conservatory is first described in Bk1 … and again (though with less detail) in Bk3, when Argent pulls Joe into a fox dream. You may get more details throughout LMM, though with 100-word chapters, I don’t spend much time on setting details. As to future books … “time will tell, for I shall not” (a.k.a. twit fishin’). ::twinkle::

  3. Jacques should be honored but I think he’s too tipsy to realize it. Not to mention dazzled by the ephemera.
