Chapter 68: Uncomfortable

Neither brother seemed in a hurry to go, so Kagome continued weaving flower stems with Kohaku. She chatted about Souta’s helpful streak, and Inuyasha quizzed her about cup ramen flavors. Normal stuff.

All the while, Sesshoumaru shifted and fidgeted, his stripes cycling through shades of light green, only to suddenly deepen to fuchsia before returning to jade.

Finally it dawned on her. He can’t get comfortable. And no wonder. She’d only seen him sit with one leg drawn up, wrist draped over his knee. That option’s gone.

So much had been taken from him. Had the Jewel given anything back?
