LMM 208: The Art of Massage

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 makes an entirely catlike leap (of logic).

The Art of Massage

Grooming with felines was delicious. Cats craved touch. Went limp and clingy and pliant in ways that were entirely flattering. Still, Jacques remained blasé, even while supporting a draped and groaning Hisoka.

“Deece does this for him, too,” he remarked.

Canarian continued kneading. “He’s barely conscious.”

“When will you learn?” Jacques chided.

Hisoka only sighed.  

“You’re attracted to males?” Canarian suddenly asked.


“But not my uncle.”

Jacques thought that should’ve been obvious by now. “I told you. I’m quite frivolous.”

“You’re friends, aren’t you?”

“He doesn’t confide in me. We don’t keep in touch.”

A hissed oath. “You’re pactmates.”
