Chapter 72: Vulnerable
Sesshoumaru disliked the miko’s medicines for the same reasons he continued to accept doses. Dulled senses and deep sleep were preferable to tedium. Drugged and sluggish. Vulnerable and slow to react.
Sesshoumaru stirred and propped up on an elbow. The boy must be having a nightmare.
Choked urgency. Mumbled protests.
He sounded so helpless.
With a furtive glance toward the door, Sesshoumaru dragged himself onto hands and knees and crawled to the room’s second futon. He felt ungainly and undignified, but if some vestige of Naraku lingered in dreams, Sesshoumaru would end him again.
A word to waken. “Kohaku.”
