Chapter 104: Skeptical
“He admitted that it distresses him when you leave his presence?” asked Sango.
“Yes.” Kagome twisted her hair in a towel. “Although he used fewer words.”

Kagome hesitated. What color was fear? “I can’t picture him afraid.”
“I’m just surprised it would take a wish on the Shikon-no-Tama to make him feel what anyone would feel.”
“You think he’s lying?”
“I think he doesn’t like to explain himself.”
