LMM 363: Canoodle

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 behind the wheel.


Jacques sat up front with Cat so that Argent could use the car ride to confer with Canarian, who was no mere personal assistant. Whenever Canarian was involved, things got done.

“I hear you visited Evernhold.” Cat remarked.

“Deece brought me ’round.”

Cat took a leading tone. “Enjoy your visit?”

“Lord. What have you heard?”

“Nothing too specific. Next time, bring me along.”

“Whatever for?”

With a sultry smile, Cat said, “You’re not the only one who enjoys canoodling.”

“You… and your stepmother’s consorts?”

“Wouldn’t you?” His eyebrows arched. “Did you?”

Jacques held up thumb and forefinger.

Cat chortled. “Details!”
