Mood Stripes 025: Kept

Chapter 25: Kept

Inuyasha couldn’t have explained why he wanted to keep his brother close. Or maybe he didn’t want to explain. This time, my reasons are my own.

“By the way,” he said. “At the next place, you’re gonna eat.”

“Not. Hungry.”

“You need food. I’ll hold you down if I gotta.” He slowed, sniffing the air. Definitely a spring nearby. “It’s simple. Pick someone. Miroku. Kohaku. Shippo, even.”


“The girls?”

A snort.

That leaves … us.

“No human food.”

Inuyasha’s grip tightened on his brother’s thighs. “You’d rather hunt?”

Sesshoumaru grunted.

Already nodding, Inuyasha said, “Sure. We can do that.”

  4. That’s some reluctant bonding going on there. I love that it is happening. Sesshoumaru is really his only family left. You are going to live da@@it! Hunting might heal him faster. He needs to kill something. Great update! Thanks so much.
