LMM 432: Presentable

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 keeping up appearances.


“How did you find Deece’s dojo?”

Kyrie said, “It is next to the garden.”

“You can see it?”

“I can feel it.”

“Which part?” Jacques opened his closet. 

“The purples and blues.” 

“I see. Well, I don’t. But you’ve always liked crystals.”

“They sing for me,” Kyrie shyly shared. “You cannot hear them?”

“Alas, no. All places are alike to me.” Jacques knotted his tie. “There. Do I look and smell more like myself?”


“Excellent! Now, what sort of baby did the wolves bring us?”


Inhabituel. What’s their clan?”

Kyrie tugged his hand to hurry him along. “Coyote.”

  2. New babies are allways good and lovely.
    But a coyote! I am a fan of “Mercy Thompson” and I know, Coyotes are tricksters.
    That will be fun.
