LMM 185: Imperfect Alliance

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 touchy one.

“Your turn.” Jacques lowered Kyrie onto Sinder’s lap. “He should know dragons come in more colors.”

“Hey!” grumped Sinder.

Juuyu was instantly at his side. “I can take him.”

Sinder eyed him warily. “I don’t need rescuing. Neither does the kid.”

“Kyrie,” reminded Jacques, who was enjoying the unintended drama.

“You do not like children,” said Juuyu.

Pointedly snubbing his buddy, Sinder explained, “I’m no good with kids. Wrong temperament. We’re shockingly selfish, dragons.”

Juuyu warbled an unhappy cadence.

Jacques waved a finger between them. “How long have you been partners?”

Sinder grimaced. “Not long.”

Juuyu corrected. “Not long enough.”
