LMM 429: Pet Name

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 cute one.

Pet Name

“Should I be insulted?”

“I hope not. You’ve always been part of their lives, part of our hearth.” Deece reasoned it through. “I guard you, I groom you, I hold you while you sleep. And Minx thinks it’s… cute.”

Rasp scooted closer and licked Jacques’ cheek.

Rake began to purr.

Deece cleared his throat. “She calls you my pet, in teasing.”

“Is that why you all toy with me, mes amis?” Jacques pressed wrist to brow.

Fend ambled closer and nosed Jacques’ belly.

“So strict,” Jacques complained, but sit-ups resumed.
