Mood Stripes 015: Teetering

Chapter 15: Teetering

“You can pick who helps you wash.”

Sesshoumaru managed a backward glance. They’d followed—monk, boy, kit. Witnesses.

Steam enveloped them. He knew this hot spring. He knew every hot spring. Because he liked to be clean.

Inuyasha lowered him to a stone. Better than dirt, but disgustingly precarious. A touch steadied him.

“You stink of smoke.” A weak insult.

“Decided not to bury your dragon. They got a pyre.”

Sesshoumaru’s ears were ringing again.

“Which one you want?” Inuyasha pressed. “You say ‘none of us,’ you get me. You say ‘do as you please,’ you get me.”

“Not you.”

  2. Oh my gosh…my heart. Poor Ah-Un. I loved that dragon. I’ve lost dogs and horses, my heart is breaking. Will he choose Kagome? Thanks for updating.
