Chapter 76: Guide Dog
Sesshoume knew her husband wanted more. But why did his desire rile her so? She’d been sure she neither wanted nor needed anything from this human. Yet she found herself saying, “There are courting games.”
“Really?” Kagomaru propped up on an elbow. “Teach me one?”
She pulled away from him, sitting up.
He pushed to his knees, pausing to tuck their blankets around Rin. Wordless, he waited for her answer.
Only one pleased Sesshoume.
She lifted her wrist, offering the magenta patterns encircling her pulse point. “Here.”
Amazingly, Kagomaru needed no further instruction. With gentle reverence, he kissed her stripes.
