LMM 192: Golden Boys

Lord Mettlebright’s Man

• • •

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’s a big boy now.

Golden Boys

“This way?” Jacques had Ever Starmark by the hand. Or vice versa, since the boy was in the lead.


Harmonious Starmark was currently showing off his new school to Argent, leaving Jacques at a monumental disadvantage. Three-year-old crossers were quick, curious, and elusive.

“Such a simple rule. Stay with Uncle Jackie.”

Ever leapt into his arms, a feat that might’ve impressed Jacques more if he hadn’t been dealing with crossers for a few years now.

“Dun be mad, Unca Zak. I wiff you!”

Lord, he was cute. “Help me find Kyrie before his dad finds me, and we’re golden.”
