Clumsy 034: Come a Little Closer

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

Chapter 34: Come a Little Closer

Mama insisted on giving Kagomaru and Sesshoume the inner room despite his assurances that they didn’t need privacy. His new bride sat on the futon, polishing her sword… hardly an invitation for intimacy. “Erm… are you sure you want me here?”

“It is necessary.”

“I’ll just lie down, then?” he inquired awkwardly.

“Hnn.” He eased under the covers, and she shortly joined him. When he crowded towards the edge of the mattress, she glanced over her shoulder. “Contact is required.”

“If you say so,” he whispered, rolling towards Sesshoume in order to spoon her… and getting a faceful of fur.

  2. Huh, interesting take.
    As always.
    Not so sure what I feel about characterization yet…

    I read your reference to this story on the new chapter of ‘Lord Charming’.
    Isn’t it frustrating to limit yourself to 100 words?
    … And do you have a standard answer to this question stored somewhere?
