LMM 178: Enviable Position

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 who always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Enviable Position

Jacques had no idea why Tsumiko trusted him with her husband, let alone her child. In the same position, he would’ve been suspicious, jealous. Yet when he woke on the chaise lounge in Argent’s closet, it was because Tsumiko was tucking him in. With Kyrie.

Argent sat on the floor, head propped on one hand. Jacques had his other trapped. When he tried to pull back, Argent held him.

“She does not misconstrue our bond.”

Our bond.

“Learn your place, Smythe.” With a soft look in Tsumiko’s direction, Argent included her in his demand. “Trust us to return your devotion.”
