LMM 327: Too Soon for Sorrow

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 with full days.

Too Soon for Sorrow

“He’s a man. I’ll grant him that.” Jacques took a soothing tone. “But he’s a very young man.”

Suuzu’s voice was barely a whisper. “Years fly.”

“They slow if you fill them. Make them sleek and fat. Laze in each day and enjoy it to the fullest.” Jacques jostled the young phoenix in a friendly way. “Don’t mourn his maturation. Wouldn’t you rather have a man in his prime. I would.”

Suuzu looked scandalized.

“Akira needs time. You have time. Argent will solve your problem.” Jacques gestured to Tsumiko. “She’s noticed, too. And my lord hates to see her sad.”

  2. I love how Argent cares for Tsumiko. He doesn’t miss a thing…and neither does Jacques. Such good advice for Suuzu. He worries so much over Akira.
