Mood Stripes 120: Eager

Chapter 120: Eager

“Go!” The promise of battle put a growl into Sesshoumaru’s command as he pointed.

“Don’t gotta tell me twice!”

Inuyasha sprang upward, eager as ever to engage a foe. Even though he was in no position to draw Tetsusaiga. They floated high and higher, and with a crackling of joints, Sesshoumaru unleashed his poison whip. To his credit, Inuyasha didn’t even flinch.

The dokkaso clipped a wing, sending an ugly, ungainly youkai floundering into the path of the taijiya siblings. Kohaku’s chain scythe rattled, and Sango followed up with the short sword from her considerable arsenal.

It ended too soon.
