LMM 222: Taking a Turn

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 loves turning heads.

Taking a Turn

Jacques declined the offer of a cab, citing the need for a walk after a week in bed. He knew his way around Keishi and could call on the Starmarks if he needed assistance.

Strolling through a shopping district reminded him that New Years was rather a big deal in Japan. Unfortunately, the sky was looking far from festive.

“It’s going to rain today.”

People were staring.

With a genteel smile, he remarked, “You’d think a city overrun by dogs would be used to tallish men.”

Jacques basked in the attention.

Until the brooding sky spattered upon his good mood.
