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 lone one.
All that Matters
“You rather put this off,” Jacques murmured. “Was it for lack of a suitable partner?”
“I’ve been… busy.”
“I keep busy myself.” Jacques chose to be straightforward. “You know I sometimes seek the company of cats?”
“Is that part of why you chose me? You wanted an experienced lover?”
“We need to be clear. Our game of hide-and-seek will stir instincts, and I’m responsible for the consequences.” Jacques sighed. “I’m aware that I’m an unusual choice for a caper through the woods, but if you trust me, if you want me, that’s really all that matters.”
