Clumsy 019: Falling on Deaf Ears

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

Chapter 19: Falling on Deaf Ears

The Western Lord returned to the sanctuary of his home and called his daughter to him. With all gravity, he decreed, “It is time to honor your pledge, Sesshoume.”

She stiffened. “He’s human.”

“Ironic, is it not?”

Her eyes narrowed. “He is no match for me.”

“Yet he lives,” he rejoined. In gentler tones, he asked, “Sesshoume, do you want to be conquered?”


“Then, this man is perfect; he is someone you can protect.”

“I would rather kill him,” she retorted huskily.

“You will do no such thing,” her father countered icily. “Or I will personally avenge the man.”
