Chapter 72: Bar the Door
Sesshoume stiffened when the door slid open and Kagomaru stepped outside. Would his intrusion undermine her advantage?
Hair loose, sleeping robe rumpled, he stepped off the porch and offered his hand to her father. “Hello, sir. Visiting?”
The Western Lord stood. “I am here for Izayoi.”
Sesshoume ground her teeth.
But Kagomaru said, “Lady Izayoi is in my family’s care. You’ll have to ask my wife about that.”
As he returned to her side—slightly behind and steady—Sesshoume seized the offer of authority and pressed her added advantage. “Go home, Father. You will not make our den your brothel.”
