Chapter 96: Changed
Kagome really wished there was more light. Not that Sesshoumaru’s mood was a mystery. He was displeased.
And very heavy.
And very close.
She squirmed, but he was immovable. She sighed, and his words purred against her ear. “Something else has changed.”
“I think so, too.”
“Because of the Jewel, of course.”
A growl at close quarters was pretty intimidating. But it also kind of tickled, which canceled everything out.
He asked, “Why do you believe something has changed.”
“Why do you?”
Kagome knew the color of Sesshoumaru’s frustration. Now she felt it—pointy and prickling—against her neck.
