LMM 242: Smile Pretty

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’s probably on guard duty.

Isla agreed, and he tried to find an angle that would show his ensemble to best advantage.

Valor Starmark sauntered up. “Want me to take the photo?”

“Would you?” Isla exclaimed. “Thanks, ever so!”

He chucked her chin with all the fondness of family. “You’ll surely be a tribute to your Sensei’s school.”

It was exactly the right sort of compliment to offer. Isla’s smile was never brighter than when inspired by Hisoka.

Jacques captured it with a tap.
