Chapter 76: Relieved
When they didn’t appear, Kagome offered to call Sesshoumaru and Kohaku to breakfast.
Inuyasha caught her elbow. “Let ’em be. For a while, anyhow.”
“Did something happen?”
“Nothing that didn’t need to.”
Hardly illuminating. “Is something the matter?”
“They’re sad is all.” His eyes pleaded for understanding. “They ain’t gonna want anyone to see.”
Kagome did wait … but only until everyone was otherwise occupied. Then she assembled a tray and tapped a warning before intruding on their inner sanctum.
After first glance, she lowered her eyes and warmly said, “Thank goodness. I was worried, but you both look stronger.”
