LMM 547: Loopholes

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 playful one.


“You two have fun.” Sinder hesitated on the threshold and raised a warning finger. “Responsibly.”

Jacques innocently asked, “Moi?”

The dragon worriedly reminded, “Argent will put a knot in my tail, then shave my mane if anything happens to you.”

“That would be a crime against nature. However, I doubt Harrison has anything untoward in mind.”

“And you…?”

“This is hardly the time to indulge my little whims.”

Sinder frowned. “Will that stop you?”

“Does anything?”

Why are you speaking in loopholes?”

“Because I like you, and that always leads to bedevilment.” Jacques relented, promising, “Best behavior. On my honor.”
