Chapter 102: Weird

Kagome scooted back just as Shippo crept through the door. He scrambled onto her lap, warily watching the brothers tussle like puppies.

He said, “They’re being weird.”

Kagome wasn’t so sure.

Sesshoumaru growled, but his cheek stripes told a different tale.

Inuyasha swore, but he wasn’t trying very hard. “What’s it mean?” he groused.

“Hnn.” Sesshoumaru brows arched haughtily. “I will let you live.”

Shippo rolled his eyes. “It means you’re safe from his fangs.”

“Oh! So it’s the same,” Kagome said warmly. “Again.”

Both brothers paused to stare at her.

She cheerfully paraphrased. “If I stay, you’ll protect me.”
