Chapter 53: Indiscretion
Miroku ushered them into the elegantly-appointed home of the village’s lord, who wrung his hands. “Thank you for coming… and for your discretion.”
Kagomaru’s mother quickly hurried to kneel beside a young woman. “Lady Izayoi.”
Sesshoume frowned. Sweet-faced and soft, with an abundance of long, black hair—Izayoi’s silken layers failed to hide the reason her father craved privacy.
She stiffened, then snatched Kagomaru’s sleeve.
“What?” her husband whispered.
But Sesshoume simply held him back. It was instinct.
Because she’d detected a scent she knew. And any male from outside the pack risked his life by approaching a pregnant female.
