LMM 224: Lovely

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 good posture.

“Are you lost?” His eyes were a whisky sort of pretty, and raindrops clung to his lashes.

“What happens if I am?” Jacques asked hopefully.

An innocent blink.

Ah, well. Jacques was used to wolves, who were into moon maidens and monogamy.

Jacques struck a receptive pose. “With you.”
