LMM 595: Meet Me in the Garden

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 should never be underestimated.

Meet Me in the Garden


“I will open the way, and you will jump through.”

“You’re vastly overestimating my courage.”

“Never underestimate wolves.”

“Sonnet’s there?”

“He is.”

Jacques swung one leg over the railing, then the other. “They say trust is beautiful.”

“You are,” Kyrie assured, humming as he pushed at… nothing.

Suddenly, Jacques heard a mournful crooning. “Sonnet?” he called in an undertone.

“Go,” Kyrie urged.

Jacques wasn’t sure which of them was more startled when he collided with Sonnet in midair.

“You fell!” he exclaimed in consternation.

“More of a leap, actually.”

“You jumped?”

“Neatly caught.”

Sonnet whined softly, then kissed him.
