Mood Stripes 077: Recuperative

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

Chapter 77: Recuperative

Both looked embarrassed, so Kagome did what worked with Souta—pretended not to see.

That Kohaku’s eyes were puffy.

That Sesshoumaru was holding him.

That her arrival had brought a dismal green to his stripes.

Embarrassment left them surprisingly docile, so she made sure they ate heartily. Kagome poured tea and dosed both with aspirin, chatting aimlessly about the recuperative properties of rice porridge and the overnight disappearance of a box of doughnuts. And still, Kagome pretended not to see.

That Kohaku was sitting on silver hair.

That Sesshoumaru was letting him.

That his stripes had changed into pleasanter azure.
