Mood Stripes 096: Changed

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.

  2. I noticed the ‘original posting’ date on and had to come and find the rest of the chapters. However, now I’m sad because I have to wait for more, but the binge read of 40 chapters was nice.
