Mood Stripes 012: Failed

Chapter 12: Failed

Sesshoumaru slumped into a waiting embrace. The monk was supporting him? That privilege belongs to Ah-Un.

“Pardon me, Sesshoumaru-sama; you need to drink.”

His mouth tasted of bile and blood. Sesshoumaru dragged both hands higher onto his bandaged abdomen. Fingers intact, palms itching, burned by his own poison. As slow to heal as the last time he’d known Tetsusaiga’s bite. When Rin came. It pleases her to stay.

His growl came out more as a grunt, but it startled the fox-boy, a cup trembling in small hands. Jaken trembles before me.

Used to. Once had. Never would. Tenseiga had failed.

  2. I have. Been remiss. On the commenting front, I’m so sorry >.>
    Life got in the way. But can I just say that you stories had inspired me? Through the eyars, I mean. They’re always so good to read.
    And so! I will come back. As much as I can.
    Thank you for sharing these with us! 😀

  4. I’m so heartbroken. I reviewed on Goodreads but I didn’t have the entire chapter. I’m really going to need some feel good here soon.
