LMM 296: Got it Good

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 hearing his name.

“Nonny.” Jacques set aside suit samples. “I’m an insensitive brute.”

“Too right you are! I got a good place here. And a position.”

“And pants.”

Jacques calmly moved his hands to cover his assets. 

“Are you really that daft?”
