Chapter 47: Returned
That afternoon, they reached Sango’s and Kohaku’s childhood home. The taijiya village remained empty, except for the rows of low mounds in an inner field. Graves. Kagome could remember when they were fresh-dug and flower strewn. Sango still bore the scars from the day her little brother—under Naraku’s thrall—had killed all their family and friends.
The siblings stood together before their father’s grave.
Kagome wanted to believe that Naraku’s demise would restore her friends to happier days. All of them.
She was worried for Sesshoumaru, whose gaze had turned inward and whose stripes darkened to black.
