Mood Stripes 070: Unhurried

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

Chapter 70: Unhurried

Since the Jewel obviously hadn’t, Kagome wanted to fix things for Sesshoumaru. But her close friendship with Sango had taught her that grief wasn’t easily discarded. Kagome might not like seeing Sesshoumaru in pain, but she couldn’t expect him to hurry up and get over it simply because his suffering made her uncomfortable.

She stepped off the porch, heedless of the dirt that was spoiling her white socks, and joined him against the garden wall. Their losses should be mourned, and they could do so together.

He offered no remark. She offered no explanation.

But Sesshoumaru’s stripes reverted to magenta.
