Mood Stripes 114: Quiet

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the prosaic one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 114: Quiet

For one fleeting moment, Kagome thought Miroku was dusting off old schemes, but Shippo’s eyes were wide, his tail puffed double.

“The quiet might have lasted.” Kohaku was completely calm. “They can sleep for years.”

Sango said, “It probably woke because it senses a threat.”

“Woulda happened eventually, once it got hungry,” added Inuyasha. “But yeah. It knows he’s here.”

“He?” Masa echoed uncertainly.

“My brother.”

Attention swung to Sesshoumaru, who gazed with lordly indifference into the teacup he cradled so gracefully.

Kagome smiled at the way pink softened through his stripes before goldening. Pleased to be considered a threat.

  2. I just love that his stripes change in colour and we get a glimpse of his inner thoughts and feelings! With every colour Kagome translates we get to know him better and feel with him. Thank you for this and all your other masterpieces!! I really enjoy your style of writing!
