Mood Stripes 091: Unhappy

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?”

  2. I don’t understand. Is it because he’s figuring out what’s going on (the stripe thing?), or because he’s now dependent on Kags as a result to the Jewel’s wish? *confused in Inuyasha*


  3. He is having a tough time. I’m looking forward to finding out just what they wished. It seems to be intertwined with his feelings for her.


  4. I just really want to know what is going on inside Sesshomaru’s head. I feel sorry for him. I’m proud of Inuyasha.


  5. I love this story (and all of your stories) and check it frequently. I’m dying to know more about what is going on with Sesshoumaru. It’s been two months; please don’t leave us hanging! I can’t handle the suspense.

    In short, keep up the good work; you are fantastic!

  6. Definately need to continue this story. Everyone is enraptured. Why can she read his moods, especially through his facial stripes? And why do those moods seem to resolve a lot around her? I like that everyone has come together in the aftermath. And Inuyasha’s pack is accepting Sesshomaru.

  8. I think Sesshomaru was feeling this way because he is in conflict about this side effect of their wish. I think he didn’t want to do anything with Kagome at this moment. I don’t know how will he react once he knows Kagome understand his moods through his stripes.
