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 picked up new languages.
The Tiger and the Goat
Jacques retrieved Nonny’s shirt and hung it alongside his own butlerish armor.
The kid sat disconsolately on a bath stool, head bowed against his best friend’s shoulder while Gilen kneaded lathered hair, quietly talking into Nonny’s ear.
Jacques was fond of the half-tiger, who’d been one of the first to cling to him. Gilen adored Hisoka and was training with Deece in order to be useful to him. Jacques could easily envision a tiger-striped bodyguard in the Twineshaft cortege someday.
Gilen gazed at Jacques over Nonny’s head, a troubled light in eyes.
The lad probably thought him a poor choice.
