Chapter 32: Searching for Compliments

Kagomaru was honored when the village’s lord approached to offer congratulations. The stern nobleman said, “Please accept my daughter’s best wishes, as well. She is… indisposed.”

“Oh? Would you like Mother to check on her?”

“Thank you, but I’ve already sent for a specialist,” the lord replied before hastily changing the subject. “Your bride seems… sweet.”

“That’s not a word I’d have chosen,” Kagomaru chuckled.

Chagrined, the lord tried again. “She is quite… tall.”


“You must be nearly eye-to-eye,” wagered the older man.

“Very nearly,” Kagomaru acknowledged with a wistful smile. I’d be happier if we could see eye-to-eye.
