Chapter 123: Heated

“Why are we stopping here?”

Inuyasha wasn’t sure how to read his brother’s sudden tension. “What’s wrong with here?”

“Trees are a feeble defense.”

He bit his tongue. Half his life had been spent up trees… or pinned to one.

Sesshoumaru’s jaw worked. “Humans are easy prey.”

“Keh.” Inuyasha couldn’t let that pass. “I’m not defenseless. Or stupid. There’s plenty of time to get back before I can’t lift you.”

That is not the issue,” Sesshoumaru growled.


Sesshoumaru’s glare was heated enough to warm Inuyasha’s heart.

“Idiot,” he repeated softly. “I gotta say it? I’m not defenseless. You’re here.”
