Chapter 6: Accident Prone
“Didja shoot her?” Souta asked.
“Well… yeah. Accidentally.”
“Huh. That’s even worse than that time you fell into the well!” his little brother teased.

Souta goggled. “Lookit those teeth! D’ya think she’ll attack?”
“She can’t,” Mama replied.
“Yet,” Kagomaru added miserably.
Mama smiled. “Your brother accidentally sealed her.”
