LMM 480: Need a Minute

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 unapologetic one.

He caught Sonnet’s hand and pulled him along until they reached Jacques’ own suite. Door secured, he asked, “Sonnet?”

“They’ll know.”

“What will they know?” Jacques tried teasing. “That your name is French and therefore lovely?”

“That I’m all stirred up.” Sonnet softly amended, “That you have me all stirred up.”
