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 needs a good night’s sleep.
“Relax, Nonny. You’re in the arms of a professional. Right, Deece?”
“Uncle does prefer him. As does Lapis.”
Jacques asked, “Do you go deep?”
“No. I gotta sleep every night.”
Once Nonny stopped squirming, he clung with force.
“I’m not going anywhere,” grumbled Jacques.
“Liar. You go all the time.”
“Part of my job.”
“Well, I’m part of your job now.”
“Irascible goat. I’m as here as I can be. Get used to it.” Jacques sighed. “You needn’t grapple me.”
“Get used to it.”
“Lord. Why me?”
“Wish I knew.”
Jacques diplomatically let Nonny have the last word.
