LMM 437: Elderbough Trackers

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 likeable one.

Elderbough Trackers

“Torloo!” Kyrie sprang up.

The older boy gamely crossed his legs, creating a seat for him. Hooking his chin over Kyrie’s shoulder to smile at the baby, Adoona-soh’s youngest started a friendly thrumming that was a far cry from a grown wolf’s rumble.


Losi gurgled back, hands waving excitedly.

Doubly adorable.

Jacques liked Torloo. The kid had been one of a long line of Elderbough trackers who’d turned up to get a whiff of their quarry’s son, but Torloo hadn’t confined himself to duty.

Kyrie considered Torloo-dex Elderbough his friend.

And bless his loyal heart, Torloo considered Kyrie his.
