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.
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?
Moments passed, and Jacques’ suspense grew.
You actually *like* them?
You’re all about fancy pastries
Muffins are for commoners
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.
