LMM 210: Christmas Morning

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 left wanting.

Christmas Morning

Jacques was used to the lock-down that accompanied long sleep. Hisoka was utterly vulnerable. Forced to trust someone. Usually someone strong. Jacques hardly qualified.

Cheap romances.

Quality chocolates.

Tea and biscuits by the tin.

Holding and being held.

Idly turning a page, Jacques rolled his eyes and tossed aside the tawdry book in favor of stroking pewter hair. With Amaranthine, little loving touches were both welcomed and understood.

Affection could be lavish.

Love could remain chaste.

But that didn’t stop a sudden spike of want when a darkly handsome stranger strolled through the door, arms filled with gaily wrapped parcels.
