LMM 386: One of the Crazy Ones

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 changed.

One of the Crazy Ones

“But you’re my choice. Wish you’d believe me.” Nonny grumbled, “I can’t exactly stop.”

“Did you know I love Argent?”

“How thick do you think I am, Devotion?”

“I’m talking grand passion, here. I was fervently, sordidly smitten.”

Nonny snorted. “Can’t be.”

“What makes you so sure?”

“Scent and… that thing you do with otherwise innocent words.”

Jacques chuckled.

Nonny definitely blushed.

“Hey, Nonny, nonny?” he coaxed.


“Argent disappointed all my hopes, but he somehow managed not to break my heart in the process.” Jacques gently said, “I won’t think less of you if your love also changes shape.”
