LMM 543: Figure of Speech

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 ordinary one.

Figure of Speech

Jacques couldn’t quite let that pass. “Is a reaver bloodline required for humans to distinguish themselves?”

“What…? Oh, for storm’s sake. That’s not what I meant!”

“Potential is in the eye of the beholder.”

“Yes, yes. And I’m sure you’re both brimming with it.” Sinder grumbled, “Stop pretending to be upset and tell me why I’m here.”

“What would it take for Stately House to abscond with Harrison?”

“You want to kidnap this man?”

“Figure of speech. He’s a natural. The children would adore him.”

“Sounds familiar.” Sinder glanced kitchenward. “I suppose it depends on what you want him for.”
