LMM 405: Swoop

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 thrill-seeker.

Sonnet hurried after, protective as ever. Jacques took his sweet time.
