Mood Stripes 073: Manageable

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

Chapter 73: Manageable

Kohaku gasped, eyes wide with dread as they roved the darkness.

Hands reached, and Sesshoumaru could neither understand nor evade their awkward fumbling—a pop to the eye, a scuff to the cheek, a painful tugging at his hair. Never had he been so rudely handled. But then the boy’s arms locked around his neck, and Kohaku was sobbing.

The door slid open, and Inuyasha leaned in. “Oh. Guess you’re handling it.”

Sesshoumaru disagreed. Strongly. But his brother closed the door again. Now what?

He’d manifested fur for draping and … occasional clinging. Rin had liked that.

Could he manage?

  2. I am overwhelmed at how insightful Inuyasha has become. Also, I am still devastated at the magnitude of his loss Rin, Jaken and Ah-Un. He’s had that dragon since he was a child🤨 For a creature with just a mystical beginning, that was a terrible end.
    I have followed your stories for a very long time😁
