Chapter 170: Petted

For the next two days, Sesshoumaru made no effort to shift out of canine form. No one asked for his reasons. He did as he pleased. But he was beginning to question himself.

  2. Exactly…what if she quit touching him? Much easier to cuddle that huge white dog than a very aloof lord. That’s kind of a big ‘AWWW’. He’s going to miss being snuggled.
