Chapter 31: Sad
Sesshoumaru couldn’t fathom why the miko was bringing her duty and consequences to him. There were others. She still had others.
Kagome asked, “Are you… sad?”
“Are there things you regret?”
Sesshoumaru’s stomach curled.
“And you want to go back and do it all differently?” Forlorn tears traced her cheeks. “Because the mistake was small, but everything after it is empty and awful?”
She needed to stop. Now.
“I’m afraid.” She stared at the Jewel. “That where you are is where this will lead me. I have to go, but I’m so afraid because … you look so sad.”
