Chapter 37: Robbed
Inuyasha fumed. They’d suffered so much, lost nearly everything. Now the Shikon-no-Tama had robbed Kagome of her wish? Parting shot. Final indignity. But he grudgingly admitted, “Coulda been worse.”
Scents of confusion and dismay shifted toward expectation, and he supposed he’d better spell it out.
“Kagome’s got too much experience purifying the crap outta that rock.” Inuyasha smirked. “And there ain’t nothing can twist someone as stubborn as Sesshoumaru. So we’re good either way.”
Inuyasha studied his brother, then pushed forward, hauling him up.
“Back to bed,” he ordered. “If something’s changed, we’ll figure it out in the morning.”
