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 playful one.
Laughter drew Jacques’ attention to Nonny, who had buddied up with Sonnet. Their game made no sense—lunging, dodging, circling, and growling. Wolf versus goat, but without a hint of danger.
Sonnet was as comfortable here as he was in the kitchen. Tail flagging playfully, the wolf’s laugh deepened as he casually tossed Nonny, then dove after him. Powerful. Protective.
Jacques liked the way Sonnet embraced his contradictions. Or maybe it was truer to say there were none. Every part of Sonnet was part of Sonnet. He was at ease with himself, and that put Jacques at ease with him.
