LMM 566: Common Good

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 smitten one.

Common Good

Jacques took a seat in one of the bakery’s booths, snapped a picture of his selection, and texted it to Nonny.

No lovely lie-in for me
But here’s a bright side

It didn’t take long for Nonny to respond.

Cor. You eat MUFFINS?

Came highly recommended

Good if I show Sonnet?
She’s hovering


Moments passed, and Jacques’ suspense grew.

You actually *like* them?
You’re all about fancy pastries
Muffins are for commoners

I’m smitten
Perhaps it’s the hint of cardamom
Elevates the experience

A longer pause. Then Nonny texted,

NOW look what you’ve done

And sent through a picture.
