LMM 391: Better Together

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 looks forward to each visit.

Better Together

Akira’s hands covered Suuzu’s. It was always adorable when he tried to protect his comely bird.

“It’s not like you to hold a grudge,” Jacques said, mostly teasing.

“I’m not. It’s just… this is Suuzu’s last day.”

“And you want to keep him all to yourself?”

Akira hesitated.

Suuzu hid his face against his nestmate’s shoulder.

Jacques came to sit on the edge of the bed. “Andor looks forward to Caleb’s visits. He can’t get away nearly as often as either of them would like.”

“Caleb’s nice,” Akira said quickly. “But… well….”

Suuzu’s trill was resigned. “He never travels alone.”
