LMM 268: In the Closet

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 probably should be furious.

In the Closet

“Welcome to the closet.” Jacques gestured to his domain. “I’m a valet, of sorts. Lord Mettlebright’s wardrobe is mine to manage.”

Nonny gazed around, clearly unimpressed.

Jacques asked, “Do you like clothes?”

“Me?” The boy’s expression was one of frank disbelief.


Nonny plucked at his thin cotton tee, the only one he ever wore. “When they brought me here, it was the first time I wore them.”

Jacques whispered, “Should I be furious?”

“Nah.” He gestured vaguely. “I have hair.”

“Is there anything you do like about clothes?”

Nonny smiled impishly. “Nobody ever tried to make me wear shoes.”

  2. 🤣🤣🤣 I love his sense of humor! Jacques will have a lot on his hands teaching this one. But I think Nonny may yet have a few surprises in store for our stalwart butler!
