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.

“Se-sshou-ma-ru!”

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.

“Se-sshou-ma-ru!”

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

“I’m coming!” Inuyasha bellowed.

And she was safe.
