Chapter 40: Tableau
Kagomaru was at a loss. Even after two weeks, Sesshoume rarely spoke, and he could feel the restlessness in her youki. I’ve trapped her here, and she hates me for it.
Starting up the steep stairs towards home, he stumbled to a stop at the sight of his wife in another man’s arms.
Shock and hurt were quickly replaced by cold fear when the demoness wrested free and flexed her deadly claws, for the violet-robed stranger lifted a glowing sutra.
“No! Don’t!” Kagomaru shouted.
Taking the stairs two at a time, he prayed that he would reach Sesshoume in time.
