Clumsy 002, A Respectable Family

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this topsy turvy tale… especially for the one who’s hoping her son can marry up. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

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!

Summary: She was the most sought-after demoness at court, but no suitor could conquer her. He was only trying to feed his family when his stray arrow felled a mythical beast. A kind-hearted man. A fierce lady. A romance told in bits and pieces. Genderbent SK. Begins here.

  1. Hi my precious…
    could you please add a “next chapter” link to chapter 1 for when I start over and over and over to read your delightful work?
    Thank you so much…
    and I am looking forward to when this becomes huge. the beginnings of an embryo always look like a fish, but I know this will be something bigger… XD
