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 missing out.
Shame on You
“Non. The house is warded against howling.”
Ginkgo nudged him with an elbow. “Howling? Shame on you.”
“I’m hardly conversant in wolvish.” Jacques shivered as a thin howl reached his ears. “The nuances are lost on me.”
“Wolfsong steals from the soul. It’s a heist that reveals the heart.”
Feeling as transparent as his ensemble, Jacques asked, “What does Sonnet sing about?”
“You know what? Ask him. It’s almost as big a compliment as asking a wolf what their name means. Ever done that?”
“I know what a sonnet is.”
Ginkgo nudged him again and softly repeated, “Shame on you.”
