LMM 436: Too Little

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 very good manners.

Too Little

Kyrie crooned over the baby in that musical way dragons had, and when he showed her his hands, Losi lifted hers.

“And here you thought no one could be as wonderful as Ninook,” Jacques drawled, surrendering her.

Sitting beside Sonnet, Kyrie asked, “Is she too little to be afraid?”

“No, love. She’s too little to be anything but wise.”

Jacques tended to agree. “Trust at first sight.”

A leggy young wolf loped over, licking Ninook’s chin before flopping at Kyrie’s feet.

Losi made little hooting, howling noises.

“Lord. What’s set her off?”

The wolf shifted to confess, “It was me.”
