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.
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.
