Chapter 54: Ruined Woman
“My daughter imagines… insists she’s visited by an honorable person, yet her elusive ‘noble’ has left her like this! Banish her shame!”
Miroku smiled, but there was an edge to his tone. “Lady Izayoi is not possessed; she is pregnant. As I already explained, I cannot exorcise a child. Let nature take its course.”
“Its father isn’t human!”
“Neither is my wife!” snapped Kagomaru.
Sesshoume’s fury rose, for Izayoi’s fear assaulted her senses, stirring deep instincts. And a growl.
Kagomaru’s mother responded correctly, laying a protective hand over Izayoi’s belly.
“Sesshoume-sama?” murmured Kagomaru, whose sleeve she still held.
