Clumsy 039: Unaccustomed Resentment

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

Chapter 39: Unaccustomed Resentment

Sesshoume didn’t realize she was grinding her teeth until Kagomaru’s mother placed a cup of green tea beside her and asked, “What is it, dear?”

The demoness stared balefully into the courtyard where her husband leaned against his broom, chatting with neighbors.

“If my son has been remiss, you’ll need to tell him what you want. We know little of inu-youkai customs.”


Custom had nothing to do with her searing resentment. Nothing has changed for him, yet I am banished from all that was once familiar. Spiteful as it might be, she wanted to throw Kagomaru’s world off balance.

Summary: She was the most sought-after demoness at court, but no suitor could conquer her. He was only trying to feed his family when his stray arrow felled a mythical beast. A kind-hearted man. A fierce lady. A romance told in bits and pieces. Genderbent SK. Begins here. To scroll through archived chapters, use the Clumsy tag.

  2. Aww so she is really feeling homesick? Or more like unaware that she is feeling so alien? Hmmm. But kogamarus friendly nature might have her fooled. His world did change maybe more than she know (shoulder shrug)
