Chapter 61: Submitting Gracefully
At bedtime, the child clearly wanted to stay with Sesshoume, but she still feared Kagomaru.
Therefore, a demonstration was in order.
Kagomaru yelped when Sesshoume pounced, sending him sprawling across their futon. Straddling his chest, she causally grasped his throat. “He is no threat. To either of us.”
“R-right.” Kagomaru extended a hand. “I’d never hurt you, sweetie. Not ever.”
The girl shuffled closer.
“You’re safe with us.”
Sesshoume reinforced his words with a nod.
Cautious fingertips brushed Kagomaru’s.
He smiled and probed, “Does our newest family member have a name?”
Hugging tightly to Sesshoume, she whispered, “Rin is Rin.”
