Chapter 22: Protected

Kagome was used to Inuyasha broadcasting his concern in three prolonged syllables—Ka-go-me! It was really very sweet, the way he bellowed her name, often while perilously close to death or dismemberment himself. The call held a promise—that he was coming, that she’d be safe.

Today, there were four syllables.


Guess I’m not the one on his mind. Her lips twitched. Because the way Inuyasha showed so much concern for his brother was also rather sweet.


Poison hissed. A crow garbled. And Sesshoumaru casually flung aside its bubbling carcass.

“I’m coming!” Inuyasha bellowed.

And she was safe.

  2. I like your portrayals of Inuyasha in your fics. He’s always as impulsive and explosive as always but more open with his feelings and fondness. At least that’s how I perceive him.

  3. That’s sweet and very mature of Inuyasha to put aside his annoyance and past feelings of contempt for his brother in order to care for him. Of course, Sesshomaru won’t be saved by Inuyasha – even when he was resigned to death a few moments before. LOL

  4. Oh we needed that little touch of humor. I love how Inuyasha is caring for his brother, gruff and clumsy but still caring. You always treat him decently. I hate Inuyasha bashing. Kagome always saw the good in him.
