Chapter 90: Huddled
Kagome didn’t understand Inuyasha’s urgency as he hustled her toward Sesshoumaru’s room. She barely had time to kick off her shoes before he dragged her up the step and across the porch.
The sliding door rattled in its frame, and he all but shoved her inside, saying, “Oi, you were right. She’s back.”
Sesshoumaru, who usually lounged, looked decidedly huddled.
Desolation streaked his face, his stripes the inky black she’d learned to associate with grief and depression. A bad day. What worried her was Inuyasha’s implication that she was somehow responsible.
Kagome started forward, hesitated, then softly announced, “I’m home.”
