“He’s not angry with us,” Kagome whispered.
“No,” agreed Kohaku. “Why would he be?”
“No. Sesshoumaru-sama understands compassion.”

“I would not mind.” He reached up to trail his fingers through silver curtains. “This is warm and soft and safe.”
“I think he’d let us.”
After several long strokes to the underside of Sesshoumaru’s jaw, Kohaku revealed, “The others will leave tomorrow, escorting the villagers home. We will follow once ShiShi’s stronger.”
Kagome didn’t mind the division of ranks. Strange how natural it seemed.
