LMM 287: Good Lad

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 wonderful with children.

Good Lad

Jacques pulled Nonny along, pausing at the head of a stairway to call, “Deece, are you nearby?”

Moments later, Deece joined them, concern plain upon his face.

“My room, I think. For privacy.” Jacques shoved Nonny in ahead of him. “Is it warded?”

“Yes,” Deece quietly confirmed. “Hello, Nonny.”

“Cheers,” mumbled the boy, scuffing a hoof into the carpet.

“Nonny’s my new apprentice. Have a look, will you?”

Deece sat on the floor and beckoned.

“Go on, Nonny. There’s a good lad. Our Deece is a daddy now, quite wonderful with children.”

The crosser’s cheeks flamed. “I’m not a child.”

  2. I figured Nonny was a “Tween”…not child, but not yet a teenager. Older than Kyrie but younger than Akira (mentally) and with less years than Suuzu.

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever thought of Nonny as a child, more of a teen or about to be one. That awkward age where you don’t fit in anywhere.
