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 in the lead.
Still ignoring Argent, Jacques asked, “Where’s Lilya?”
“Is it naptime?”
“Yes.” Kyrie leaned up to whisper in Jacques’ ear. “I am not sleepy.”
Argent mildly suggested, “Shall we show Sonnet the way to the naproom?”
The boy solemnly said, “This way, please.”
Argent sauntered after his son, leaving Jacques to escort Sonnet. He explained, “We all take turns overseeing sleep.”
“And Kyrie’s mum is there?”
“Ah. No. There are four parents at Stately House. Sansa is ‘Mum.’ She manages the kitchen.” A thought occurred. “My lord, did you tell Sansa about this?”
Argent’s smile had smirkish tendencies. “No.”
