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 fine monsieur.

Jacques hugged Hisoka protectively as the stranger deposited his parcels.
“You, my fine monsieur, are on the gift list of an elite set—Mossberne, Starmark, Mettlebright.”

Cat. Jacques relaxed into a smile. “I’ve been assured of your love more than once.”
“Consider me smitten.” He slunk nearer. “I’m another of Deece’s sexy older brothers. Yes…?”
“Don’t tease the man,” chided Canarian.
Cat’s green-eyed gaze never wavered. “It’s only teasing if what’s offered is withheld.”
