LMM 602: Stars Tell the Truth

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 wrote.

Stars Tell the Truth

Jacques knew something was wrong the moment Argent turned from the table, letter in hand. “When did this arrive?”

“Not sure. I’ve been… out of pocket.” He set aside trays, found the envelope. “Doon-wen Nightspangle?”

“He is gone.”

“Who’s gone?”


Jacques missed a beat. “Where did he go?”

“Heaven knows. He was taken.”

“From Bellwether?”

“Inti felt eyes on him, so he left campus. To lead them away.”

“Was it those foxes?” asked Ginkgo.

“There is no proof.” Argent’s frown deepened as he gazed at his son. “However, someone has been quietly, methodically stealing crossers. And they have Inti.”
