LMM 444: Needed

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 knows what’s needed.


“This one knows what she needs,” crooned Sansa.

“People generally do,” remarked Adoona-soh.

Jacques risked a glance. Sure enough, Adoona was looking right at Sonnet, whose tail lifted.

Argent asked, “You needed me?”

“If you can spare the time,” Michael began tentatively. “I need to arrange for a series of crystals for Kurogi-kun. Something just off-key, so he’ll have to bring them into balance. I’d prefer to choose them myself.”

“You need a ride.”

“To Glintrubble.”


“I could go get my coat…?”

“Rearrange my calendar, Smythe. I will be away.” Gazing off after Michael, Argent blandly added, “Family emergency.”

  2. Argent adapts so well to his “families “needs. I always love these chapters. With new babes in the house, I hope we see more of Tsumiko. She is more elusive than her fox. ❤️
