Chapter 93: Formidable
The miko acted with an authority Sesshoumaru had never given. She set herself up as a barrier between him and further annoyances. None could look upon him without getting past her, and she was smilingly formidable. Isolation was a welcome balm.
Even she did not approach him. Instead, she conferred with Kohaku, who came to Sesshoumaru at intervals, asking for direction or preferences. The boy’s respect was as it ever had been, untouched by pity, unfettered by doubt. But the miko’s acknowledgment of Sesshoumaru’s right to lead—despite his weakness—was a dangerous balm, touched by power, fettered by wishes.
