Clumsy 073: A Nod to Propriety

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this topsy turvy tale… especially for the one whose ardor is real. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 73: A Nod to Propriety

Kagomaru winced at Sesshoume’s words. Izayoi’s reputation was already at risk. Her own father had all but called her a demon’s whore. Yet Sesshoume had scoffed. Will the Western Lord take insult?


His whole attitude cried confusion. “Izayoi is mine.”

“Your dalliance, perhaps,” she countered. “Your passing fancy.”

“My mate!” He flung his arms wide. “She carries proof of my ardor.”

“Coupling alone is no proof.” Sesshoume spared her partner a glance. “Not for humans.”

Kagomaru took the cue. “A wedding might improve Lady Izayoi’s mood.”

“Hnn.” Sesshoume’s lips curved upward. “We shall bind Father as I was bound.”
