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 wanting one.
“Of course she’d want her mother. Any child would. Well… I certainly never wanted Maman, but if it was you, I know I’d want….” He stopped himself.
Sonnet stole a kiss.
Not a proper one.
It was an apology.
Jacques knew how these things were supposed to proceed. Knew how to be generous. “You’ll go to her. You must. Hazel will be relying on you.”
“She is,” Sonnet whispered.
“I understand. I do.”
Jacques wondered if Sonnet didn’t want to leave in much the same way he didn’t want to be left behind. He dared to ask, “How long?”
