Chapter 29: Shackled

Not me? Why not me?

Kagome probably should have taken the hint. She wasn’t wanted, plain and simple. Except her life had never been plain or simple. “What makes you so sure?”

Shippo stopped just out of reach, eyes round.

Sesshoumaru’s gaze locked with hers.

“Because it wasn’t so long ago, I would have said ‘not you’ to you, too.”

No reaction.

“All I’m saying is that you never can tell.”

Fine brows knit. “Do as you please.”

Dismissive. Thoughtless.

Kagome huffed. “You wouldn’t like that.”


From under her kitten-print pajamas, she brought out the Shikon-no-Tama on its chain.

    ::hahahaha!:: Hmm, I thinking that Kagome might be pondering on introducing *Lord Snitty* to the word “Sit!” 😉 😀

  4. From under her kitten-print pajamas…that image is just too much! A bit of silly in this so far grim scene. But I like that she can’t let him wallow for too long. Is there a bit of light at the end of the tunnel?
