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’s sure to be a natural.

Argent said, “Smythe generally gets his own way. Your cabal is outmatched.”
Sinder looked skeptical.
“Tsk.” Argent held Jacques’ gaze. “You should be capable of this much.”
What else could he say? “Yes, my lord.”

Yes! Jacques will put them straight. This is going to be fun 🤩

I almost feel sorry for the entitled people in that room… almost.
This is when actions (and some well-chosen words) mean more than anything else. Argent knows how to show his trust and he’s showing it manifold for Jacques here!!
