Chapter 97: She Runs Alone
“My wife isn’t running away from me?”
“She does run, and she runs well.” Her father tapped the floor. “But you are here, so she runs alone.”
“I messed up?”
Fangs flashed. “If you had knowingly insulted my daughter, I would gladly crush your disloyal heart within your chest.”
Kagomaru winced. “Can I fix this?”
“If she allows it.” He relented somewhat. “When she leads, you must follow. And when you catch her….” The Western Lord lifted his eyebrows suggestively.
With a rough poke at Kagomaru’s shielding blanket, his father-in-law cheerfully urged, “Show her the extent of your ardor.”
