LMM 381: Mon Dieu

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 enjoying a prolonged grooming session.

“Nonny trusts you.”

“But I’m not the trustworthy type!” Jacques waved a hand. “I lack moral fiber.”

“Beg to differ.” 

“Lord. Listen… I have to be good. Better than good. Upstanding! And I’m rather more used to being disreputable.”

“Again,” said Canarian, whose eyes sparkled. “Beg to differ.”

  3. I’m very behind on commenting. I have some catching up to do. Jacques has certainly changed his ways and while he likes to be a bit shocking, he has become very protective of those in his new home.
