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 caught in the middle.
Sonnet started toward them with little mincing steps that quickly lengthened into a businesslike bustle. “Is something the matter with Jacques?” Leaning close and touching his face, Sonnet asked, “Are you hurt?”
“Not a bit. Is there an Amaranthine equivalent for the term manhandling? If so, I quite enjoy it.”
“Da?” Sonnet whispered, clearly still concerned.
Eyes wide, Sentinel mumbled, “I forgot myself.”
Sonnet frowned. “How did you come to be together?”
Sentinel grumbled, “I could ask the same of you.”
Jacques rested his head against Sentinel’s shoulder, luxuriating in their mutual concern. So alike, these two. Where it mattered.
