Chapter 20: All Yours
At sunset that evening, Kagomaru closed the shrine doors and turned to find two silver-haired youkai watching him. “You’re back!” he greeted.
Stepping forward, the Western Lord pleasantly announced, “Kagomaru, this is my daughter, Lady Sesshoume of the Western Lands.”
Nodding respectfully, he offered a friendly smile. “It’s nice to meet you! I should probably….”
“She is yours,” her father interrupted, smooth as cream.
Kagomaru blinked. “Erm… excuse me?”
“In human terms, she is your bride. Keep her well.” With a rush of youki, he departed, leaving Kagomaru alone with a straight-backed demoness whose expressionless face managed to look tragic.
