Chapter 70: On the Prowl
Sesshoume slept little, prowled often, and relished a thousand imagined accusations that would bring the Western Lord to his knees. So she was ready the night Father came sniffing around the shrine, searching for his mate.
Stepping into the moonlight, she coolly announced, “These are not your lands.”
His nostrils quavered. “My hunt led me here.”
“Find prey elsewhere.”
After a lengthy silence, the Western Lord said, “Daughter.”
Chin lifting, she said, “Father?”
“What have you…?” He stopped, hands clenching at his sides. “Is Izayoi here?”
“Hnn.” Sesshoume stalked forward. “The woman you abandoned whimpers for you in her sleep.”
