Clumsy 082: Greater Understanding

Chapter 82: Greater Understanding

Sesshoume made frivolous demands, keeping Kagomaru at bay and busy. But she’d underestimated him.

When she said, “Bring me something beautiful,” he bought a hand mirror.

When she said, “Bring me something sharp,” he presented an arrowhead on a ribbon.

“It’s the same one,” he revealed quietly. “From that first night. The shaft vanished, but Mama found this on the floor.”

She touched the flinty tip.

“It still glows a little, but I don’t think it’ll hurt you.”

Unbelievable. He had kept the arrowhead that felled her, as if it were something precious.

Because to him, it was. She was.
