Chapter 182: Unified
While Kagome sloshed about, Sesshoumaru sat drying before the fire. She’d provided a blanket, and he drew it up around his shoulders.
Kohaku quietly asked, “Drool?”
He offered a halfhearted, “Hnn.”
Gesturing to Shishi, Kohaku conveyed, “Drool and dogs go together.”
So Sesshoumaru delineated his theory.
Kohaku heard him out, and he didn’t contradict. Only said, “If so, then the Shikon-no-Tama underestimated you both.”
Distracted, Sesshoumaru leaned over to sniff Kohaku’s hair. Did everything smell like her?
The boy’s quizzical expression cleared. “Shishi says Kagome-sama has unified our scents.”
“Are you displeased?” Kohaku pressed.
Oddly enough, he wasn’t.
