Chapter 51: Early Riser

Kagomaru stared at the ceiling, trying desperately not to think about the demoness draped across his body. Lately, his standoffish wife ended up twined with him by morning, her body all but merging with his. When she woke, Sesshoume would pull away with an accusing glare.

Retreat and rejection—their inevitability usually kept his libido in check, but his sense of self-preservation had apparently taken leave with his senses.

He wanted… more.

She’s going to kill me.

Suddenly, Sesshoume’s eyes snapped open, and a fierce growl throbbed between them. Kagomaru opened his mouth to apologize, but she spoke first.

“He’s back!”
