Chapter 126: Empty
“This it?” Inuyasha asked when they reached the cave Sango had found.
Kirara mewed and primly wrapped her tails around her paws.
Kagome, who’d had to pick her own way through the underbrush, lifted their lantern. “Empty?”
“Not sure,” he grudgingly admitted. His nose had already stopped working.
“It is safe,” said Sesshoumaru.
Inuyasha grunted and hauled himself the last few steps to safety. Inside was cool and dry, but he couldn’t see, couldn’t hear, couldn’t taste the air like he usually did.
“Aww, hell,” he whispered, because he hated this part of being hanyou.
It devastated him every time.
