LMM 557: Efficacious

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 concerned party.


Jacques needed a moment, so he took it.

Can you be more specific?

She burnt the gruel this morning
Keeps calling me Florent, whoever the hell that is
Tail might be permanently tucked

Did something happen?

Been quiet

Was it possible? Jacques didn’t like to presume, but….

Does Sonnet know where I’ve gone?

NOBODY knows where you’ve gone
The guv said to stay mum

Pass along a message for me?

She’s right here

I was spirited away by foxes
But I’ll be home anon

I gotta actually say *anon*
Who talks like that
It worked
Wag’s back

  1. I love that word! ❤️Anon ❤️(been watching way too much Bernadette Banner). Yes Nonny, you need to expand your vocabulary. I just knew Sonnet was missing Jacques and didn’t like not knowing where he had gone off to.
