Mood Stripes 154: Soulful

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

Chapter 154: Soulful

Sesshoumaru recognized the breed, likely brought from the continent. Noble beasts. Nearly as rare as a two-headed dragon. It didn’t escape Sesshoumaru’s notice that he was bronze. Like Ah-Un’s scales.

Inuyasha swore at chains.

Kohaku tallied injuries.

Kagome pleaded with words that earned her a soulful look and a tentative lick.

Despite all these distractions, the creature kept lifting large, dark eyes his way. While there were no words—as Kohaku claimed—there was a will. And it was fixed upon Sesshoumaru. The same, yet different. A soul.

Neither could he deny that once clean, the beast would be… cuddly.
