LMM 409: Safe Space

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 left home for a good reason.

Safe Space

Sonnet’s whine nearly broke Jacques’ heart.

“Bring them here? If Michael can’t charm them, Sansa will browbeat them.”

The wolf bit his lip, kicked his feet, and finally asked, “Have you ever wanted to invite your family here?”

Jacques’ eyes widened. “Mon dieu. I shudder to think what would happen if Bon-Bon were to sneer upon all I hold dear. Or for Maman to belittle my feelings or criticize my choices. It would be horrible.”

A tear slipped down Sonnet’s cheek. “I knew you would understand.”

“Shall we bring your news to them? I would be pleased to escort you.”

  2. Sonnet is breaking my heart 😭💔 But also Jacques continues to as well, in little, off-hand ways. I’m so proud of him and what he’s found – including himself. ❤️❤️

  3. Every single person at Stately House belongs to this place. The kids and good friends too – Lapis, Hisoka and others, we don’t know yet. Everyone is needed and the family is growing.
    With the help of Jacques, Sonnet can be brave – if his parents and sisters will see this place they will understand.
