Chapter 9: Rattled
Kagome stared mutely into the fire, fingers wrapped around the Shikon-no-Tama—whole again, hers again, and ominously heavy. But wishing it away would have to wait.
“I’ll go.” Inuyasha paced. “He came from that way.”
Miroku hummed. “That is not much to go on.”
“Keh. Gotta try.”
“I’ll go with you,” Kagome offered.
“No. You and Shippo keep an eye on the bastard for me.”
Inuyasha met Kohaku’s unwavering gaze and muttered a resigned, “Keh.”
Kagome knew why the hanyou was so rattled. He’d warned them off, shielding his brother. But I saw. Sesshoumaru had shed a tear.
