Mood Stripes 103: Needful

Chapter 103: Needful

The following morning, Inuyasha talked things through with Miroku.

“He needs her to stay close? How close?”

“How the hell should I know? I’m surprised we got that much out of him.”

“But he accosted her in her bed?” The monk’s eyebrows gave a little wiggle.

Inuyasha snorted. “He’s not your kind of crazy.”

Miroku conceded that with a smirk. “So what was he after?”

“Peace of mind?” It was hard to explain. “He was anxious, maybe even desperate. This matters to him. She matters to him.”

The monk frowned. “In what sense?”

“He’s not saying. Not sure he knows.”
