LMM 396: Ask Better Questions

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.

“So inquisitive. And about all the wrong things.”

“What should I be asking about?”

A light rap preceded Sonnet into the room. He was already dressed for the beach.

Josheb gaped. “That’s… a lot of skin.”
