Clumsy 018: A Double-Edged Promise

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

Chapter 18: A Double-Edged Promise

Sesshoume sat in the window of her room, gazing longingly at the out-of-doors. All my efforts. Will they come to nothing because of a human?

For decades, she’d heroically demonstrated that the future of her father’s lands was secure. Having no intention of being another’s stepping stone, she’d wrested a promise from him that guaranteed her independence. If she defeated a prospective mate, she could refuse him. So Sesshoume conquered all those who looked upon her as the perfect little conquest.

No male could match her. No male would touch her. No one could lay claim to her… until now.
