Chapter 118: Perturbed

“There is something I can do?”

Sesshoumaru could feel the intensity of Kohaku’s focus like a touch. He hated this… this alteration. Some power outside himself had tampered with his perception. Sesshoumaru was displeased with the Jewel for meddling, but his perturbation ended there. With the Shikon-no-Tama.

“Hnn.” Stretching out a hand, he let his fingertips brush Kohaku’s arm, willing him to understand. “This is no place for children.”

Miroku began a patient reiteration of his plan, but Inuyasha waved him off. “He heard you. Hear him out.”

Sesshoumaru sighed.

Kohaku asked, “What should I do?”

“Villagers need a village.”

  3. Ohhh…that’s exactly what I was thinking, take them to the old slayer village. It would give them a home and Kohaku a purpose. Thank you for this early Christmas gift. May you have a Wonderful Christmas Dear Forthy. All year you gift us with your beautiful stories that leave us smiling.

  4. I would think the old Slayers village too, but I am wondering what impact that would have on Kohaku. Would he relive the deaths of family and friends that came by his hands?
