Chapter 134: Traded
The confession slipped out. “I hated you.”

“I won’t let you.”
“You stopped me.”
Inuyasha winced. “I hurt you.”

“Ever been happy?”
After a long while, Sesshoumaru sighed. “Perhaps.”
“That’s good, I guess,” said Inuyasha. “That way you’ll know when it happens again.”
“Promise me something?”
Sesshoumaru’s nod was slow in coming.
Inuyasha roughly ordered, “Don’t leave.”
