Mood Stripes 059: Locked

Chapter 59: Locked

Kagome braced her shopping basket against her hip as she flipped through another journal. Something that’ll hold up outdoors. Heavier paper for coloring. She’d already chosen the box with the broadest spectrum of colored pencils. Color wheel included! With these, she’d archive every nuance of Sesshoumaru’s stripey mood swings.

She moved along the aisle—lifting, riffling, rejecting. Near the end, there were more expensive options, some of which looked handmade. Kagome gave them a cursory glance, then reached for one that featured a locking clasp. The tiny key, which bore a crescent moon, sealed the deal.

Next, the shampoo aisle!

  2. I love how she picks the one with the lock because it gives the illusion of privacy (any youkai could break it easily). The crescent moon in the key sounds so cute!

  3. That lock isn’t going to last. One good twist of a claw and its toast. But I do like the crescent moon design. Decisions decisions… Can’t wait for the next chapter!

  4. I know Sesshomaru is a dog demon but reading this delightful story only makes me think of a injured and wet feline begrudgingly accepting help from the peons who’ve found him. And I love it. I also suggest something like shea coco butter for scent cause can you imagine Inuyasha’s face!?

  5. 😀 I love this. I say this every time.
    I am looking forward to finding out what the different colors mean, and also what scent of shampoo she gets for him. Great journal also…

  6. I just read this entire story and as usual, I’m in love. It’s tragic now but you’re good at that. You always write beautifully, and the mood stripes thing is genius. I wonder what their wishes were… I remember reading someone’s comment here that kagome wished that she could understand sesshoumaru while sesshoumaru wished that kagome understood him without him saying anything and I kind of see how those 2 wishes would complement each other. Well, whatever their wishes were, the jewel made sure to be ~creative~ about it.

    I never let any of your works pass without me reading them, so here I am subscribing to your wordpress. I’m a big fan of your work and thank you for this! Can’t wait for the rest (and its debut on fanfic so I could save it on my fanfic app right away haha) 😀
