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 actually a father.

“You’re a journalist.”
“Having trouble with them, are you?”
“I do sympathize. The paparazzi have beastly manners.” A pitying sneer. A patronizing tone. “Her classroom? I’d rather avoid further unpleasantries.”
The administrator paled. “Are you threatening the school?”
“Lord, you are an alarmist.” An exasperated insult. A casual order. “Call security, then. I’m curious to meet Sentinel, anyhow.”
