LMM 389: Break with Tradition

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 admires curls.

Break with Tradition

Jacques decided that dragons could bask in more than the sun. Lapis was suited to moments like this.

“Curls, do you think?” asked Lapis.

“Unavoidable, really.”

“Ringlets are wondrous things.”

“Spoken like one who’s never had to deal with them. Do all dragons have straight hair?”

“Probably. Although, in theory, a half-dragon could break with tradition.”

“Maybe someday, you’ll introduce me to a child with blue curls.”

“I would not mind that sort of someday.”

“And then I shall have to teach you how to properly care for curls.”

With a shy glance, Lapis murmured, “I shall rely upon you.”

  2. In my heart of hearts, I always hope Jacques and Lapis will end up together since I love them and their bond so. But really I just want the both of them to be happy. What a sweet update. I too look forward to a day when Jacques might help teach Lapis how to care for curls. 🥰 You’ll find the one for you one day, Lapis!
