LMM 420: Comfort Zone

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 with an ironing board.

Comfort Zone

Sonnet’s rooms smelled a little of starch and a little of candle wax and a little of tea. He stole Jacques’ dressing gown and hung it beside a fresh-pressed dress and apron. Fluffed fur topped the bed, but the sheets beneath were crisp and smelled of lavender.

“Have your way with me,” encouraged Jacques.

“Are you sure?”

“Quite.” He doubted anything Sonnet had in mind would push him past his comfort zone.

“Then… I will.”

“Beg pardon if I fall asleep on you.”

Sonnet was suddenly looming over him, his posture utterly dominant. “Beg pardon if I keep you awake.”
