Mood Stripes 160: Ridiculous

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the one who’s being ridiculous. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 160: Ridiculous

Ridiculous woman. She’d asked nothing, and he’d done what was necessary.

Ridiculous question. He couldn’t answer.
