Chapter 60: Swabbed

Kagome felt like part of a crime scene investigation team as she and Souta moved along the aisle.

Pop. Dab. Zip. Jot.

She opened lids, swirled cotton swabs, and dropped them into individual bags, which Souta sealed and numbered, noting the brand and scent.

“You didn’t save the ones from Inu-no-nii-chan?” Souta whispered.

“He buried them.” She smiled at the memory. “Sesshoumaru-sama’s probably even pickier.”

A woman in a smock eyed them from the end of the aisle. Kagome smiled angelically. “Wow! Amber’s a scent?”

Souta played along. “Very … alluring.”

Mollified, the clerk moved on.

Pop. Dab. Zip. Jot.
