Chapter 35: Dwindling

Miroku hurried over, his gaze bent on their clasped hands. “May I ask why …?”

A ruckus in the overhanging branches interrupted. Inuyasha had been patrolling, quelling interest in the completed Jewel. “Oi! What in the hells …!”

Kagome had no idea how to answer.

The Shikon-no-Tama pulsed again.

Eyes wide, ears flat, Inuyasha looked between her and Sesshoumaru. “Did you guys come up with a way …?”

Another pulse.

Miroku whispered, “May we see?”

Sesshoumaru slowly withdrew his hand, exposing the Jewel’s dwindling light. As they watched, it split into two perfectly transparent halves before collapsing into pale sand.

  2. Maybe their ‘silent’ wishes were for each OTHERS ‘comfort’ and not their own – an unselfish wish on BOTH their parts; TWO halves because that’s what the jewel is made of – demonic and holy power? INTERESTING!
