LMM 497: Smile for the Camera

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 apologetic one.

Smile for the Camera

“Can you see, Kurogi-kun?”

“Think so!” Jiminy gave a thumbs up. “Don’t move too fast, okay Inti?”

The monkey crosser batted his eyes at the camera, then whispered something to the orange stone Michael had surrendered.

“What was that? Did you start?”

“Nope, nein, nyet,” Inti answered, earning a soft giggle from Isla.

Jiminy sighed. “This is so much harder when I can’t feel the stone’s song.”

“That must be… umm. Sorry, Jacques.”

“No need for pity or apologies. I can’t miss something I’ve never had,” lied Jacques.
