LMM 476: Parked

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 questions.


Jacques hit his turn signal and pulled to the side on a country road that saw almost no traffic. Turning and lowering his sunglasses, he said, “I’ll be needing some confirmation.”

Without breaking eye contact, Sonnet reached down, hooked his shoes, and passed them forward.

“Right. Shall I join you? Or do you fancy a stroll?”

“Here, please.”

Jacques obliged, sliding into the back seat.

Sonnet asked, “What did you offer? Exactly.”

“This?” Jacques repeated the gesture. “Do you want the literal meaning? Or the highly euphemistic one, popular among feline consorts?”

Sonnet went all dominant and politely ordered, “Both.”

  2. I agree I think we are all holding our “baited” breathes to see how things will progress! (peeking with hands over my eyes) Although I risk speaking for all of us when we say we are both excited and happy to see our favorite Uncle and Sonnet move in a direction that makes their hearts happy!
