LMM 438: One of Yours

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 oversight.

One of Yours

Jacques hadn’t forgotten that Ninook was well within his personal space and—practically—breathing down his neck. But he pointedly ignored the posturing.

In fact, it was because he was gazing off in a bored way that he caught sight of a stranger on the grounds, drifting in the general direction of the house.

Jacques pointed. “Is that one of yours?”

“He runs with us, yes.”

“There were no humans on the guest list we approved.” More to the point, “Did you tell Argent?”

Ninook hesitated.

Jacques sighed. “You’d better collar him before ….”

But it was already too late.
