LMM 202: For a Good Cause

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 with an apprentice.

For a Good Cause

“Isla lives here?”

“She has a room.” Argent smirked. “And an adjoining library.”

“I assumed they were a little more… alone together,” Jacques admitted.

“Twineshaft has always been careful with females.” Argent touched a stone before steering Jacques through an archway. “There are three floors of staff between them. I would wager Isla has never seen his private quarters.”

“But you have.”

Argent smirked. “And you shall. Are you clear on the timeline?”


“I appreciate your sacrifice.”

Jacques was missing Christmas at Stately House. “Pish-tosh. I’m your gift to Hisoka.”

“Make sure he sleeps.”

“Long and deep.”

“Good man.”
