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 real one.
Fraught with Potential
When Jacques—eventually—arrived in the foyer, he wheeled a trunk behind him.
Argent eyed first him, then it, before remarking, “Is that all?”
“Non. I sent the larger one ahead with Ginkgo, though he was skeptical it’ll fit in the boot.”
“You couldn’t have economized?”
“Sacrifices were made,” Jacques loftily assured.
Just then, Argent strolled up. Another Argent. “Leave off, imp.”
A third Argent tapped Jacques’ shoulder. “We are very nearly late. And certain brats grew bored.”
“Idle tricksters will make mischief,” a fourth Argent blandly agreed.
“Lord. Does Tsumiko ever…?”
It seemed a reasonable question. Jacques would have.
