Clumsy 022: Over the Threshold

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

Chapter 22: Over the Threshold

Sesshoume turned aside to collect the trunk that held her few necessities… and the sword she’d refused to leave behind. To her annoyance, the human hastened to her assistance, grunting as he hefted her luggage. Its weight would have been nothing to her, but it pleased her to inconvenience the man.

Dread and defeat dogged her steps as she followed Kagomaru into his hovel of a home, and a woman leaned her broom against the wall, exclaiming, “Oh, my! We have a guest?”

“Yes,” the man answered, awkwardly lowering his burden to the floor. “Sesshoume-sama is joining us… erm… indefinitely.”
