Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine.

Jacques snorted. “You’re straight.”

“I get that. I mean… wolves.”
Jacques murmured, “Lord, yes.” But his appreciation was far less generalized after last night.
