LMM 435: Beneath Notice

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 for the one with crazy-good camouflage.

Ninook took that for invitation and pressed close, inhaling deeply, but also making certain that the baby could see him and—perhaps more importantly—smell him.

“May we twist a bit of your hair for a bracelet?” Jacques inquired. “It helps. Sometimes.”

“Perhaps a braid, three strands from her three minders,” Ninook suggested. “I’ll give the task to Torloo.”

Kyrie tugged at Ninook’s tunic. “Torloo came?”

“Oh! Kyrie. I did not see you there.”

“I know.” He went up on tiptoe. “Does she have a name?”

“Losi,” said Ninook, his expression warming. “The boy who found her named her Losi.”

  2. Ah. The month is going by so fast! Soon there will be less Jacques to sooth our hearts with his kind and flirtatious demeanour. Heartwarming as always, Forthy.

  4. Oh that is so sweet. I love that her name is Native American. I wonder if she will live up to her coyote heritage. ❤️ My hubs has Cherokee and Cree in his lineage.
