Chapter 2: A Respectable Family
The Sunset Shrine was certainly respected within the village, and their lord was a generous patron; however, his support only went so far. Mama sometimes hinted that Kagomaru could marry well.
Yeah, right. Who?
Rumor had it, the lord’s daughter was already entertaining a suitor, and none of the other maidens came from prosperous families.
Kagomaru intended to wait until he could support a wife and children with his own two hands. That’s why he’d buttoned down and begun practicing his archery. He had yet to succeed, but perhaps tonight, his luck would change… and his family’s fortunes with it!
