LMM 330: Dragons and Fours

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 enjoys pampering.

Dragons and Fours

The following Thursday, two more members of the Amaranthine Council arrived unannounced. Jacques found them in the front hall, not quite squabbling.

“But… I cleared my schedule especially!” Lapis flustered easily when he was tired. “To slip away.”

“Isla needed escorting,” replied Hisoka. “My schedule is similarly open.”

“I had hoped to have Jacques to myself.”

“Understandable. I share your preference.”

“I brought chocolates.”

“I brought nephews.”

Lapis whirled and draped himself piteously. “Am I supplanted?”

“He’s only teasing,” soothed Jacques. “He may even be pampering you.”

Hisoka purred comfortingly. “If you share my hearth, your companions will be fourfold.”
