Clumsy 012: A Fierce Lady

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this topsy turvy tale… especially for the independent one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 12: A Fierce Lady

The demoness tugged unhappily at the spoiled fabric of her favorite hunting kimono. The white silk with its bright red geometric crest was too severe to be pretty; indeed, it had belonged to her father in his youth. Her uncommon choice served as a statement, as did the sword that normally adorned her slim waist.

Sesshoume openly embraced her role as sole heir, as formidable a successor as the West could hope to find. Only fools underestimated her prowess, and she trained with single-minded intensity to keep would-be suitors at bay. None would have her, for she needed no one.
