Chapter 112: Warring
From their polite distance, Kagome alternated between watching Miroku and watching the inu-brothers for reaction. But Inuyasha’s ears were as steady as the magenta in Sesshoumaru’s stripes.
Miroku returned, all smiles. “Refugees. A few families from a fief that was overrun.”
“How sad,” murmured Kagome. Realities of the warring states era.
“We are invited to share a meal.”
“All of us?” asked Inuyasha.
The hanyou folded his arms. “They know what we are?”
Miroku calmly answered, “My friends.”
“You know what I mean, houshi.”
“That will not matter.” His gaze lifted to the treetops. “They need friends like mine.”
