LMM 526: Mutual Appreciation

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 ones who are touching.

Mutual Appreciation

Ginkgo piggybacked Jacques toward home. “You’re escorting Inti to Jiminy’s enclave. But first, we’re hitting the nearest bathtub.”

“You’re coming with me?” asked Jacques. “That’s rare.”

“Not much choice. Or did you want me to deliver you to Dad looking like sex and smelling like a threesome?”

Jacques snorted. “You’re straight.”

“Yep, but you’re not the first guy to help a good friend over an awkward patch.” He quietly asked, “You gonna be okay, Jacques?”

“I’m going to be grateful.”

“I get that. I mean… wolves.”

Jacques murmured, “Lord, yes.” But his appreciation was far less generalized after last night.
