Chapter 175: Normal
Kagome woke much earlier than usual, while the dawn was gray with fog. Normally, she’d have snuggled down and begged for another hour. But that was impossible.
“Sesshoumaru-sama?” she whispered.
But she couldn’t think what else to say. Not when Sesshoumaru’s calm gaze offered no more reproach than the serene blue-green of his stripes.
Kohaku sat up on Sesshoumaru’s other side, mumbling a greeting as he found his feet. “I’ll start the fire.”
Like this was entirely normal.
When Sesshoumaru quirked a brow, she decided to pretend. “One more hour.”
Quiet as the curls of mists, he answered, “Hnn.”
