LMM 215: Taste Fear

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 teacher.

Taste Fear

This side of Hisoka was terrifying, yet Jacques let it happen. Not because he was developing a new kink. Far from it.

Growls subsided into purring, and Jacques squirmed when the licking began. “Lord, you’re a tease.”

“Hardly. Saliva is one of just a few bodily fluids utilized by the clans ….”

No wonder they called him Sensei. Jacques hoped the droning lecture would calm his trembling heart.

“Jacques, are you afraid of me?”

“You can taste fear, can’t you?”

Hisoka hummed. “Why do you persist?”

“Why else?” Jacques flopped onto his back and peered around. “Your way works best.”

  2. Hisoka made a sigil on Jacques face so he could leave Lapis during his long sleep. Argent made a sigil on his palm, Jacques could see and hear ephemera and see sigils. Both times only for hours, perhaps a day.
    Jacques and his friends make the effect longer lasting using cristals, fox fire and body fluids – saliva, blood and …
    Perhaps it would have even better effects, I dare not hope.
