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 loving one.
Asking the Wrong Questions
Jacques found Juuyu difficult to read… until those strikingly orange eyes settled on Lilya. Brows lifting slightly, he held out his hands in a silent offer.
Michael beamed as if he’d done something supremely clever and passed along his daughter.
“Are all Amaranthine foolish about babies?” blurted Jacques.
Juuyu calmly countered, “Is love foolish?”

“Does love require wisdom?”
