Chapter 112: Warring

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.

“Certainly!”

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.”
