Chapter 110: Preferred

“You got a preference?” Inuyasha asked. “Another dragon, maybe?”

Sesshoumaru looked away, not trusting his voice.

“No,” said Kagome. “Something else. But what?”

“There are twin-tails in these mountains,” said Kohaku.

The monk said, “Totosai rides an ox.”

“Your friend Hatchi has given us rides.” Kagome sought Sesshoumaru’s gaze and added, “A tanuki.”

“There are the other divine beasts,” offered Sango. “Tiger, phoenix, turtle.”

Inuyasha snorted.

Sesshoumaru tended to agree.

“Serpents are easier to come by,” said Miroku.

Kagome pouted. “Couldn’t we try for something more… cuddly?”

He blinked.

She beamed.

“Right.” Inuyasha shrugged. “Guess we’ve got ourselves a quest.”
