Chapter 38: Bringing Home the Bacon

Kagomaru finished his day’s work and meandered toward the house. Even before stepping onto the porch, a mouth-watering aroma tickled his nose. Following it inside, he gaped at the sight of roasted meat heaped on the serving trays. “Mama… where did you get all this?”

“Can’t you guess?” she replied smilingly, her eyes rolling towards the demoness lounging in the corner.

“Sesshoume-sama?” he ventured.

His wife’s gaze was serenely smug. “I have made up for your lack.”

Though her words stung a little, Kagomaru valiantly swallowed his pride. “Thank you for helping take care of my family… no… our family.”
