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 true to himself.
Toe to Toe
“Am I keeping you from your work?” Jacques moved forward to accept the coffee and stayed toe-to-toe.
“Not today. It’s Saturday.”
“Is it?” He sipped and sighed. “An appointment, then? Or some… assignation?”
“Nothing that can’t wait.”
Jacques lightly tapped the knot of Harrison’s bowtie, not a clip-on. “You’re dressed to impress.”
“I need groceries.” He shrugged. “This is how I always dress.”
“Sit with me,” Jacques invited. “Tell me more about yourself, Mr. Peck.”
“Me?” Waving from chart to coffee to crayon masterpieces, Harrison said, “What you see is what you get.”
“Sit with me,” Jacques insisted. “I’m intrigued.”
