LMM 257: Skip the Jitters

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 monumentally intimidating one.

Skip the Jitters

Argent bowed them through the door, though his usual elegance was somewhat diminished by the little boy wrapped around his leg.

“I’m home,” Jacques sang out. “Did you miss me?”

Brows arched.

“Not you, my lord.” Dropping to one knee, Jacques crooked a finger. “Come to Uncle Jackie.”

An upward peek for permission.

A soft huff to grant it.

Kyrie scuttled into Jacques arms. “Help me welcome Sonnet? She’s feeling a little shy.”

A snuggle for Jacques.

A wave for Sonnet.

Argent prompted, “Can you say her name?”

Kyrie reached out. “Sonnet.”

“Oh, love,” she crooned, jitters banished. “I’m home.”
