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 often confused by instincts.
The Most Important Thing
Jacques had been nagged, mocked, and scolded for everything from the length of his hair to his taste in shoes. That’s why he was resolved that head to toe—or hoof in Nonny’s case—he’d accept their crossers.
“Teach me, s’il vous plait.” It had become one of his most-used used phrases. “I need lessons in Kyrie.”
“Oui. I need lessons in Ever, too.”
Like most young crossers, Kyrie didn’t have words for everything that was going on inside.
“One thing,” Jacques urged. “Tell me one true thing.”
Soft as a sigh, Kyrie answered, “Love you, Uncle Jackie.”
