Chapter 152: Surprised
This time, Sesshoumaru held her back, one hand winding into her hair.
“But…!” she protested.
He arched a brow and tightened his grip.
“It’s given up.” Kagome wanted to cry. “Don’t let it give up.”
Gaze slanting to the beast, Sesshoumaru asked, “What do you see?”
“Someone suffering. Someone sad. Someone alone.”
Sesshoumaru’s stripes darkened. “What would you have me do?”
Inuyasha grumbled, “Get that collar off, for starters.”
“Yes, please,” said Kohaku. “The chain is hindering his ability to heal.”
Kagome couldn’t have been more surprised. “How do you know?”
Kohaku turned back and calmly replied, “He told me.”
