Chapter 43: Called into Question

“I can!” he retorted indignantly.

Miroku lifted a placating hand. “Then why send for me?”

Kagomaru shrugged helplessly, but his mother hummed thoughtfully. “It’s been some time since anyone’s seen his lordship’s daughter. Perhaps the trouble lies with her?”

They looked expectantly at Miroku, who only shook his head. “He was frustratingly vague about the nature of his problems, but the sum he offered was considerable.” His gaze drifted briefly toward Sesshoume before admitting, “My curiosity is piqued.”

  3. Hello! Just wanted to leave a quick note to point out that the “Next Chapter” link for Chapter 43 isn’t working. 🙂 I’m a big fan of your IY writings on Fanfiction (in fact I go back and re-read them ever so often), and have only just recently stumbled upon Clumsy (yay!). Thanks for sharing this wonderful story with a twist; it’s been a real pleasure to discover that you’re still actively writing. Rock on!
