LMM 583: Hold Tight

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 who’s on call.

Hold Tight

The enormity of Argent’s trust was flattering, but Jacques had concerns. Tucking his lord and master under his chin, he gazed pleadingly into the camera, sent the selfie, and thumbed a plea.

Argent wore himself out
I shall need reinforcements

Canarian Evernhold was already responding.

How secure are you?

Probably spectacularly warded
Assume we’re safe

Hold tight
Making calls

Jacques turned so Argent’s ear rested over his heart. He petted silver hair and thought devoted thoughts until Canarian’s next text pinged.

How many taskforce members
do you know about?

More than I’m supposed to



You’ll be meeting Colt
