LMM 467: Resources

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 with insider information.


The sun dipped low, and Harmonious urged Jacques to make use of one of the guest pavilions. Carpet bag in hand, he strolled along a covered walkway, admiring the leaves falling at twilight. When a golden ginkgo leaf drifted to a stop at Jacques’ feet, he hastily fished out his phone. 

Mon dieu, I am an idiot

My sympathies

You ran with wolves, yes?

You know I have
Still do sometimes

I need a discreet favor

Sure thing

It’s important

Still sure
What’s the thing?

This next festival, I plan to run

No response.

And then Jacques’ phone rang.
