Chapter 48: Replace His Scent
“What should I do?”
She would have thought it obvious. “Touch me.”
“Can you be more specific?” He eased closer, cautiously taking her hand. “I… don’t want to presume.”
Sesshoume’s brows arched. Did he expect her to beg?
“I want to touch you and hold you, but I don’t want to make things worse. Will you teach me about inuyoukai?”
She fought for calm. Why should she explain ancient customs to a mere human? She growled menacingly.
Kagomaru didn’t flinch or flee, but his eyes grew wide… and sad. “Please?”
“This,” Sesshoume snarled through clenched teeth, “is how you beg.”
