LMM 228: Back Door

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 family in Keishi.

Back Door

Jacques was thoroughly wet by the time Sonnet hustled him through an obscure gate and onto someone’s back porch. “Cousin?” Sonnet called through an open screen. “May I beg a favor?”

Bare feet made no sound upon tatami mats.

Built and bronzed, this male had silver eyes and black hair arranged in a topknot. The flowered kimono hung open, suggesting wolf.

“Paltry!” Sonnet kissed the cousin’s cheek. “Help me warm this human?”

Jacques was past pride. “Have mercy on this poor wretch.”

Palms met. Nostrils twitched. Brows arched. Paltry remarked, “It’s raining cats and wolves today.”

In English.

Bless him.

  2. I *do* know that it’s Friday & LMM usually updates on Thursdays. But I’ve always had an aversion to posting anything on April 1. As if anything posted on Fool’s Day is automatically suspect.

    Silly. But sometimes I am. ::twinkle::
