LMM 254: Two Sides

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 flexible one.

Two Sides

They took the quickest route to Stately House, which wasn’t entirely legal and did criminal things to Jacques’ hair.

Ginkgo waved from the limb of a sentinel tree.

Nonny planted his hooves, sniffed, and scowled. “How come he looks like a lady, but smells like a wolf?”

From under Sonnet’s hem, a tail flashed. “Why, thank you.”

The kid blinked. “British?”

“Lovely! We have something in common.”

Nonny warily asked, “Are you a girl or a boy?”

Ginkgo dropped to the ground and rapped Nonny’s head. “Don’t be rude. A crosser should understand better than anyone about betwixts and betweens.”

  2. So I am re-reading Tsumiko and for the first time it occurred to me when I saw Ginkgo name. If Argents enslavement was generational, does that mean if something had happened to him it would have passed to his son? It would explain a lot of why he acted/ treated Ginkgo the way he did. To keep him safe. He continues to strive for that in future books too.
