Chapter 9: Unguarded Moment
The demoness didn’t immediately wake, but her wound slowly closed, and Kagomaru breathed a sigh of relief. Until he realized something. Her slim hand was wrapped around his wrist, and she was not letting go.

The roosters in the village below were just beginning to crow when he felt a hand at his throat.
