Chapter 58: Strict

Sesshoumaru would have refused to acknowledge the monk, but scents of wood and cloth filtered past his stubbornness. Eye contact brought him nearer.

“I apologize for taking so long, but my efforts have met with a modicum of success.”

A parcel rested across the monk’s knees.

“I checked every household for formal attire and chose these.” He patted the bundle with satisfaction. “I am under strict orders to smuggle you out from under Inuyasha’s well-meaning protection. Ah, and Kagome-sama left this.”



Sesshoumaru grudgingly accepted the bottle. He might not like his choices, but at least he had one.

  2. Okay so, I have decided to try to relate Sesshoumaru’s emotional state to the color change in his stripes. I do this knowing that such a color coding may not exist, but it will give me something to do between installments 😉
