Chapter 84: Flowery

Kagome whispered, “What is Miroku doing?”

Inuyasha folded his arms into his sleeves. “Apologizing.”

“Erm … why?”

Their whole group was really very good at letting things pass without remark. Inuyasha, especially, didn’t like a fuss made over every little thing. Yet Kohaku stood with Miroku, who bowed low as he extended a small bouquet.

“Why else?” Inuyasha watched the exchange closely. “He’s an idiot.”

Miroku’s words were as flowery as his offering, but Kagome recognized their underlying sincerity. And she suspected Sesshoumaru did as well. His expression remained grave, but his stripes brightened to lemon yellow.

Like silent laughter.
