Chapter 129: Watchful

Sesshoumaru knew Kagome was watching him watch his brother. He could feel the lingering weight of her thoughts. Soft as the light in her eyes. Warmed by approval.

Then the dynamic shifted, and Sesshoumaru was watching his brother watch Kagome. Caring plain on his face. Exasperation adding familial nuances to his fondness.

She hugged herself. “Sunrise?”

“Not yet. Lie down already.”

“And miss out on the brotherly bonding?”

Inuyasha snorted. “We’ll hold off.”

Then Inuyasha was watching Kagome watch Sesshoumaru. And whatever he saw clearly startled him.
