Mood Stripes 128: Kind

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the conversational one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 128: Kind

Kagome watched Sesshoumaru’s fascination with Inuyasha’s humanity flicker with the firelight. If only Inuyasha would stop reading his fears into the stillness and silence.

Letting their shoulders bump, she said, “He probably thinks you’re cute.”

“Huh?”

“He’s pleased you invited him. I can tell.”

“Keh.”

“Why not admit you enjoy each other’s company?”

Inuyasha looked scandalized. “Stop saying weird stuff.”

Laughing, she asked Sesshoumaru, “Was your father this stubborn?”

“Stubborn, impulsive, and fierce.” His gaze never wavered. “And kind when he could be.”

She saw right through him. And played along. “He was kind to you?”

“Kinder than I deserved.”

  3. Aw…that was wonderful and very heartfelt. I love this story so much. I’m going to try once more to add a comment to your favorite anime post. I’ve tried twice but the darn thing won’t post. I’m probably doing something wrong!🙄
