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 barefoot.

“And my next question would be…?”
“What’s a fundoshi?”
“I’ll bite. What’s a fundoshi?”

A light rap preceded Sonnet into the room. He was already dressed for the beach.
Josheb gaped. “That’s… a lot of skin.”
