LMM 586: Private Entertainment

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 taskforce member.

Private Entertainment

Dressage really hadn’t prepared Jacques for straddling someone of Colt’s girth, but the stretch was satisfying in its own way. He relaxed into an easy rhythm that carried him higher.

Lord, he loved horseback riding. The entendre wrote themselves.

He refrained from telling Hallow, who somehow managed to be drop-dead gorgeous, assassin-level dangerous, and exceedingly virginal, all at the same time.

As city lights receded below, Jacques willed his thoughts away from leather, laces, and that tantalizing peek of wing folds. His success rate was roughly two-out-of-three. “Do bats ever–”

Hallow silenced him with a finger against his lips.

  1. Jacques! Jacques! Jacques! He just can’t help himself. I’m loving the bit in Suuzu’s story where Boniface is going on about his brother. Too funny and too right.

    • Bon-bon seemed equally exasperated and a bit envious that his brother gets to cavort about with so many folk and they all simply find it endearing rather then truly scandalizing. Me thinks Bon-bon needs to hang around the Amaranthine a lot longer.. :whistles:
