Chapter 99: Willing

Inuyasha couldn’t resist adding, “Which ain’t likely. Only one Kagome’s ever promised to stay with is me. Even so, she’s not mine to give.”

“She’s also right here. And willing to listen.” Kagome placed a hand on Sesshoumaru’s chest, but as far as Inuyasha could tell, she wasn’t pushing. “Are you experiencing a consequence of our wish?”


“And it’s unpleasant for you?”

As Sesshoumaru’s arrogance lost traction, Inuyasha’s concern grew.

Kagome asked, “What would you have demanded of me if I belonged to you?”

“The same.”

“Same as what?” Inuyasha pressed.

“As you.” Sesshoumaru flatly announced, “She must stay.”

  3. I agree with kshadeslady. He was so close to either saying or at least realizing himself what the jewel is putting him through. However I wonder if she will admit what it gave her?
