LMM 361: With Our Compliments

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 happy to be seen.

With Our Compliments

Jacques felt entirely vindicated for lingering over his turnout, because when he strolled into the Starmark’s grand foyer, a familiar face was waiting. Canarian Evernhold lowered his glasses and swept Jacques with an appreciative gaze.

Distance closed, he inspected Jacques’ glade green vest with his fingertips before tugging him close. “You’re looking lively. Is it this color… or the company?”

“Quite possibly the coffee. Is that for me?”

A travel mug exchanged hands.

“With our compliments. Catalan is waiting with the car.” Canarian rubbed their cheeks together, but his purr tapered to a chuckle. “Or was. Cat can be… impetuous.”
