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.
