LMM 207: With Intent

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 compliant one.

With Intent

Jacques had just closed the tap when Canarian murmured, “I’m impressed.”


“You were right. Uncle’s back.”

Naturellement. It would be entirely rude to let bathwater go cold.”

That’s the necessity you created?”

Jacques decided not to correct him.

Hisoka propped a shoulder against the doorframe. “Worried about his intentions?”

“He shouldn’t be. I haven’t any.” Jacques snapped his fingers. “Strip or be stripped.”

Wearily, Hisoka dragged off his tunic.

“Are you staying?” Jacques inquired sweetly.

Canarian’s smile turned mischievous. “Do you have intentions for me?”

Oui. I want you here in case he falls asleep in the bath. Again.”

  2. 🤣🤣🤣 Yes, I would imagine it’s hard to drag a snoozing adult Amaranthine out of a deep soaking tub. So why not use the …erm…muscle at hand.
