Chapter 33: Bare Minimums

Shortly after the last villagers took their leave, Sesshoume stiffened when a wave of youki carried a luminous bubble into the courtyard.

It dissipated to reveal the Western Lord, who sniffed at his daughter’s attire. “Trappings only. Will you persist in rebellion?”

She opened her mouth, but Kagomaru stepped in front of her. “With all due respect, sir, we’re bonded, just like she promised.”

Shaggy brows lifted. “Will you take what is yours?”

“If I choose,” Kagomaru countered stubbornly.

“Keh. If he will not cover you, then his scent must,” the inuyoukai decreed. “Any less, and your inheritance is forfeit.”
