LMM 451: Pretty Boy

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 likes delicacies.

Pretty Boy

“Isla Ward of Stately House. This is Uncle Jackie, our butler.”

Jacques was intrigued. Since when did squirrel clansmen flash tails? “You haven’t answered Isla, pretty boy. Why are you in Jimsy’s room? Are your intentions honorable?”

If they weren’t, Jacques was prepared to be doubly intrigued.

“Behave,” chided Isla.

Kip was a good sport, smiling through the banter. Isla was so easy to tease. But there was a point.

“It’s a matter of some delicacy.”

“My favorite,” murmured Jacques.

That’s when Lapis turned up looking the farthest thing from rugged. “Why have the two of you commandeered Michael’s desk?”
