Mood Stripes 054: Commanding

Chapter 54: Commanding

Kagome couldn’t pull free as Sesshoumaru rolled his wrist, slowly winding her hair around his hand. His cheek stripes were the dark red-orange of coral. Up close, she realized that the narrow bands of color on his eyelids matched the stripes.

He didn’t stop reeling her in until their noses bumped.

“Yes,” he said, menacingly soft. “There is something you will change.”

Progress! Pushing aside her alarm, Kagome smiled. “Sure, since it’s obviously important.”

Sesshoumaru made a face—well, for him. A teensy, petulant pucker of brows, a return to lavender.

“I will no longer tolerate smelling like my brother.”

  2. Is this an issue with the same (dog) shampoo, or that he’s piggybacking his brother? Considering Inuyasha might be the only one strong enough to manhandle him anywhere, Lord Charming’s giving a pretty tall order. Unsurprisingly.
