LMM 447: Dance Attendance

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 arrived with the other.

Dance Attendance

Jacques took himself to the blue parlor, where Lapis lounged, head tipped back, expression blissful while Kyrie brushed his hair. Isla was also dancing attendance upon Lord Mossberne, adding gold leaf to his pedicure.

“Your meeting has been postponed,” Jacques announced. “Michael needed his lordship, and they’ll be away for the rest of the day.”

Lapis opened an eye. “No matter. More time for amateur theatrics.”

Isla spoke up. “Uncle Jackie, May I go over Sensei’s calendar with you?”

“In French?”

“Would you mind?”

“Hardly. It’s all the same to me.” He impulsively asked, “Shall we use your father’s office?”
