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 surprisingly optimistic one.

When Jacques turned back, Timur had coaxed Kyrie into his arms.
At fifteen, the young battler had matched his mother’s height, and his jawline showed evidence of an inexpert shave. With an easy smile, Timur offered a hand. “Been a while.”
Jacques marveled over the teen’s calluses, but his grip was gentle.
“Shall I take him?”
Timur cradled Kyrie closer and coaxed, “Stay with me for a bit?”
The boy peeped at his father, who said, “Indulge Timur. I have need of your uncle. Come along, Smythe.”
Jacques was only too happy to be needed. Until he found out why.
