LMM 398: Show Me Yours

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 wants to swap secrets.

“Entirely.” Jacques approached, carefully gauging Josheb’s reactions. “You’ve won Argent’s trust. Let us prove ourselves worthy of yours.”

“I… have a tattoo.”

“Do tell! Better yet, show.” Jacques bartered for its baring. “I recently added a third tattoo. Mine were wrought with the aid of the First of Wards. Experimental sigilcraft.”

“You’re what? A test subject?”

“A willing one. Haven’t you ever wished to see the things your brother does?”

Josheb slowly nodded.

“Then we must chat! Say… during tonight’s grooming session?”
