Chapter 16: Alone
Sesshoumaru tensed, but Inuyasha only snorted and said, “He’s all yours.”
Then the monk’s hand was there, and the boy knelt before him. Kohaku’s eyes were red, his voice low, his manner frank. “I’ll help with your clothes. Miroku-sama will change your bandages.”
A basin and rags. Seeping flesh. Sesshoumaru watched the monk inspect the damage. An angling cut midway between ankles and knees.
From the spring, Inuyasha called, “Is he healing?”
“Not quickly.” And more softly, “Bear with us, Sesshoumaru-sama.”
Kohaku stole his tatters and relayed news. “We kept Jaken-sama and Rin-chan together; they won’t be lonely.”
