Chapter 21: Tempted
“They’re after the Jewel.” Kagome had a sickening sense of history repeating itself. “I should have wished it away.”
Sesshoumaru’s gaze drifted to the rosy sphere she wore on a chain.
Another demon bird dove, only to be knocked aside by a spinning top. Shippo’s attack was a big help, but it careened off Kagome’s hip. Ow. That’ll leave a bruise.
With a careful clawtip, Sesshoumaru traced the curve of the Shikon-no-Tama.
Kagome held still; pulling back now would be an insult. The Jewel never tempted him before.
“It twists wishes,” he murmured.
“Yep, a selfish wish means disaster… sorry.”
