Chapter 92: Blameless
Sesshoumaru wanted to blame the miko for every shred of misery he’d endured—to hate her and to hurt her. He glared darkly and flexed his claws, but Kohaku’s embrace pinned his arms and kept him off balance, pressed into his solitary corner.
The boy’s low litany held tremors of regret. “We didn’t loiter in meadows. We came straight back. She went for your sake. She wanted to please you.”
The urge to lash out faded.
“I kept her safe, Sesshoumaru-sama.” Emotion crackled the young man’s voice. “We came back. We’re here.”
“Hnn.” What else could Sesshoumaru say? “Well done.”
