LMM 486: Extracurricular

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’s lost track of the lesson plan.


Jacques was fairly certain he’d been making a point. Or possibly using a kiss to avoid a conversation. But when he drew back, Sonnet followed. 

“No… wait. I wasn’t ready!” He pressed a pleading kiss to Jacques’ jaw. “Again?”

Oh, this was premature.

And potentially problematic.  

When Jacques didn’t immediately respond, Sonnet tried a nudge, then a nuzzle. “I want to try.”

“And I want you to succeed.” Jacques put a finger to Sonnet’s lips, gently fending him off. “Only a little, though. And try to keep perspective.”

Sonnet whispered, “We can start… now?”

Jacques hummed. “We started ages ago.”
