LMM 572: Cyril’s Boys

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 very pretty ones.

Cyril’s Boys

Find Me was exactly the sort of boutique that Jacques gloried in, and the three very pretty shop boys didn’t hurt. Jacques adored Tyrone’s instinct for lines, Faisal’s sense of drama, and Giuseppe’s eye for color. He was in the hands of artists.

Giuseppe unrolled and draped.

Tyrone wielded tailor’s chalk.

Faisal sought the perfect accessories.

He let them doll him up, dote, and otherwise distract him until Argent suddenly stalked through the door. Everyone stilled as the fox trailed a finger over the detailing on Jacques’ vest.

Taking a deep breath, Argent relaxed visibly and lightly asked, “Having fun?”
