Chapter 91: Unhappy
The gaze that lifted to Kagome’s was blank, but lurid ripples stained Sesshoumaru’s stripes, shifting moods trapped in the blackness. These are not happy colors.
How was she supposed to dispel a mood as dark as miasma?
Kagome would have called for Kohaku, but the boy was already there. A hand on her shoulder as he passed, a murmured greeting as he knelt beside the cornered youkai.
When Kohaku wrapped his arms around Sesshoumaru’s shoulders, Kagome steered Inuyasha out the door. “How long?”
“Keh. The whole time.”
“What set him back?”
“Hard to say.” Inuyasha fidgeted. “Maybe it was you?”
