LMM 408: Appropriately Festive

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 being unusually clingy.

Appropriately Festive

Sonnet patted the wall. “Sit beside me?”

Jacques settled in, politely ignoring the feel of cold stone against bare buttocks.

Again, Sonnet took his hand.

“Good lord, what’s happened?” Jacques kissed Sonnet’s knuckles. “Spill.”

The wolf’s gaze turned soulful. “I should tell my parents about Vanya.”


“But… how?”

“Photograph? Phone call? Letter by herald would be appropriately festive.”

“No… I mean… how do I explain that a bond of sisterhood is at the heart of this honor? And that I’m proud to be this boy’s second mother?”

“Did you need me to jot that down? Because it’s well said.”
