LMM 567: Midnight Muffins

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 conniving one.

Midnight Muffins

Sonnet bent over a cookbook, a finger pushing loose tendrils from her coiffure behind one pointed ear. Several spice jars were already on the counter, alongside the basket in which Vanya was no doubt asleep.

Sonnet’s chuffed
Argent’s the only one who knows
how to make your fancy favorites
but she can do muffins

Another snapshot followed. Sonnet had glanced up, her lips parted in soft surprise. An expression Jacques had inspired before, though under very different circumstances.

It’s a trifle early to be making me muffins
Argent isn’t done conniving

A selfie followed. Nonny grinned cheekily. Sonnet looked… good.
