Mood Stripes 027: Stilled

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

Chapter 27: Stilled

She woke when Shippo patted her cheek. “Say, Kagome, he sounds bad. Got any more pellets?”

Crawling from her sleeping bag, she found the bottle and rattled. Not much left. Maybe after they reached the slayers’ village, Inuyasha could get her to the Well.

Kagome tiptoed to where Sesshoumaru curled—strained breathing, restless hands, a low groan she’d pretend she hadn’t heard. Fever? Gently touching his forehead, his cheek, she murmured, “Sesshoumaru-sama, your medicine.”

He stilled. He stared.

She touched two tablets to his lower lip. “Open,”

His jaw relaxed. Briefly.

Kagome stilled. She stared. Teeth made an effective trap.

  2. He may be down but those teeth are still lethal. Having to accept human medicine and help must be humiliating for him. His brother he can accept, but a human. Kagome must feel like a mouse before a snake. As always, a lovely chapter. Cheers!
