LMM 541: If the Ward Fits

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 recently learned of wards.

If the Ward Fits

“I do love a man who knows how to be creative.” Jacques weighed the risks against his impulses. “It could be arranged, but… lord. I’d need permission.”

The man leaned forward and breathlessly asked, “From Lord Mettlebright?”

“Him and a few others.” He tapped a quick message to Sinder. “All very hush-hush.”

Harrison murmured, “It’s like you’re a spy.”

“That’s probably just the accent.” Jacques pocketed the phone and sat back. “There. Text sent. We’ll see if my friends decide you’re a security risk.”

“Will it take long…?”

“All depends, really.”

Someone knocked.

“Ah.” Jacques beamed. “Not long at all!”
