Chapter 55: Ladies of the Shrine
“What?” Kagomaru whispered, “Why?”
“It would seem,” Sesshoume ground out. “Another member of my clan mingles with humans.”
Miroku, who’d been eavesdropping shamelessly, leaned in. “Sesshoume-sama, how do youkai deal with half-blooded children and the women who carry them?”
Kagomaru gaped at him, then at Sesshoume. “Please tell me you wouldn’t harm them!”
The truth rankled. “No, but I will have words with the pup’s father. And they will be sharp.”
“Excellent!” Miroku beamed at Izayoi’s father. “My lord, we have arrived at a most harmonious arrangement! The ladies of the shrine will see to your daughter’s comfort and safety.”
