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.
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.”
