Mood Stripes 021: Tempted

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the trusted one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

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.”
