Mood Stripes 026: Silent

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

Chapter 26: Silent

For the remainder of the afternoon, Inuyasha carried Sesshoumaru through trees and along trails. Aimless except to get away from the others, to give his brother some space. And to share it.

Not a word passed between them. A relief, since words were hard. And oddly revealing. They didn’t need words; they did better without them.

Inuyasha hunted and presented his prey to Sesshoumaru, which the bastard acknowledged before wandering off in his thoughts. So Inuyasha made good on his threat. Not actually holding him down, but he did feed him—bit by bloody tidbit—until every scrap was gone.
