Chapter 79: Indulgence
Kagomaru watched carefully whenever the Western Lord came to see Izayoi. The inuyoukai accepted their chaperonage with gentlemanly ease. And he never came empty-handed. Suspecting this was another youkai courting tradition, Kagomaru sat beside his wife. “He keeps bringing her things.”
Sesshoume glanced at Souta, who’d presented Rin with a frog.
“I mean your father. He’s always giving Lady Izayoi presents.”
“He is her suitor.”
“So it is another courting game?”
“Will you teach it to me?”
“One asks, the other indulges their wish.”
“Is that all?”
Sesshoume hesitated. “When played well, the game leads to greater understanding.”
