LMM 336: Where, O Where?

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 pleads ignorance. I think. Who can tell, with that guy?

Where, O Where?

“The four of you do not love me,” protested Lapis.

Au contraire! We are universally smitten.”

The dragon squirmed closer. “I want a lady, you know.”

Jacques did know. Lapis wasn’t terribly subtle. “She will be the most fortunate of souls.”

“Where is she, I wonder?”

“I’d wager Hisoka knows, if anyone does.”

All attention swung to Hisoka.

“Despite popular opinion, I don’t know everything.”

“Lord. He’s evading.”

Catalan gasped theatrically.

Canarian began purring.

Lapis wibbled. “You would tell me if you could?”

“How could I do any less?”

Jacques’ curiosity was doubly piqued, but Hisoka’s tiny headshake begged discretion.

  2. Oh! Oh! Oh! Yes! A lady for Lapis. That would be amazing. I’m sure Hisoka (who protests too much) is working something for his friend ❤️❤️❤️
