Clumsy 086: Remember When

Chapter 86: Remember When

“When you were born, Dad and I sat here, waiting,” said Kagomaru. “You took all day.”

Souta knocked his feet against the step below theirs. “A whole day?”

“Felt like half of forever,” Kagomaru teased. “Dad was a wreck.”

“Yeah?” Souta didn’t remember their father, so he craved stories. “Hey, look! It’s Miroku-sama!”

The monk hit the shrine steps at a dead run, and Kagomaru scrambled to his feet. “What’s happened?”

Miroku pointed urgently.

The brothers turned in time to see a great beast break through a distant cloudbank. Souta huddled against Kagomaru, who muttered, “That’s one very big dog.”
