LMM 564: Look at the Time

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 with longstanding priorities.

Look at the Time

A smile creased the corners of Juuyu’s eyes, and he reached across to gently rearrange Harrison’s sleep-rumpled hair. “I must decline. Jacques will be late if we do not leave immediately.”

“Before coffee?” complained Jacques.

“Coffee or a change of clothes. Choose.”

Wardrobe was an immediate yes. “Lord, look at the time. Parting is such sweet sorrow, etcetera, etcetera. Also, I’m holding you to your promise.”

“Did I promise something?”

“I’m struck through the heart! It was a solemn vow between friends.”

“Remind me.”

Jacques bussed Harrison’s cheeks. “Your summer holiday belongs to me. I’ll see you at Stately House.”

  1. Loved this! Yes, wardrobe is always a priority for Jacques. Harris will love Stately House.

    Okay new site, JetPack. Does this work the same? I guess it transferred all my stuff over from Word press.
