Mood Stripes 056: Independent

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the one who gets personal. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 56: Independent

“You and Inuyasha have been close. I mean, you… erm… travel together.”

“He carries me.”

So much for diplomacy.

Sesshoumaru lifted the twist of her hair, sniffing lightly. “You cleanse with a different scent.”


“Scents are personal, even for humans.”

Lavender stripes deepened to violet, then veered extraordinarily close to default magenta.

“I’ll bring shampoo samples. And I’ll talk to Miroku.”

Drat. Orange again.

“Not about this.” Kagome touched his shoulder. “If you want more independence from your brother, it’s time to stop borrowing his shirt.”

That blue was new.

She smiled encouragingly. “Trust Miroku-sama. He has expensive tastes.”

  3. I’m thinking of a certain kind of Axe body product would be more fitting, though its name is more fitting to another canine-based bishie, the one that’s called “Phoenix” seems to suit Sesshoumaru best. 😉
