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 likes to splurge.
Early morning found Jacques returning to Randolla’s. “You’ll understand clothes’ appeal if they’re properly fitted.”
“I have clothes.”
“Your usual things are fine for usual things. But for official things, we’ll splurge.”
“Something tasteful. Something appropriate. I’m partial to greens, but blues would better bring out your eyes.” Inspiration struck. “I wonder, would it be too outré for me to establish my own clan colors?”
Nonny snorted. “Clan Smythe?”
“Perhaps not. But we can still employ color.”
“For what?” Nonny skidded on some ice and swore under his breath.
Tucking the kid’s arm through his, Jacques promised, “You’ll see.”
