LMM 364: Always the Last Place

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 polite to bears.

Always the Last Place

Back at Stately House, Jacques was having trouble locating his apprentice. He checked Nonny’s usual haunts. Naturally, he was in the last and farthest from home.

“Lord. Why are you way out here?”

The half-goat’s gaze was belligerent. “Those cats are here again.”

“Yes, the Evernholds are here.” Jacques nodded to the bear who took up most of the shelter. “They had business with their uncle.”

Nonny snorted. “I’ll stay here, thanks.”

“Why? This is barely habitable! Err… no offense, Doran.”

The bear grunted.

Because,” grumbled Nonny. “I don’t want to know what you’re getting up to with those cats.”

  2. Oh, Nonny is friendly with bears.
    Doran even told him what Andor told Doran.
    Andor is BIG and STRONG and OLD – and he can bring star wine. Well done, Nonny. 😃
