LMM 221: Overbooked

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 with a packed schedule.


“Canarian said to let him know when you wake.”

“He knows.” Hisoka paused partway through a languid stretch and murmured, “Ah. Right. Isla.”

Jacques knew that Amaranthine could communicate wordlessly with their kin. All well and good if your nephew doubled as your personal assistant. But imagine dear Boniface’s reaction if he was privy to his brother’s every thought.

“Would you do me a favor?” asked Hisoka.

He perked up. “You need me?”

“I do.” With traces of chagrin that Jacques doubted many saw, Hisoka explained, “Tomorrow is Isla’s first day of school. Would you escort her to New Saga?”

  3. Wait, Amaranthine can communicate wordlessly with their kin? This is new, right, I haven’t missed this in the books? Which makes the Amaranthine telepathic within their families?
    Wow 😳
