Chapter 183: Complimentary

When Sesshoumaru donned one of his other sets of clothing, Kagome couldn’t help smiling.

“You’re looking more like yourself, Sesshoumaru-sama.”


She hurried to help with gathering and knotting his pant legs. A peep of white. Tidy bandages. “Not that I have any complaints about the other. Blues complement your markings, and I find the color peaceful.”

He arched a brow.

“But red and white is battle armor. You’re a fierce warrior, someone to be wary of, a surprise attack.”

Sesshoumaru’s expression didn’t change, but his stripes deepened into a gold that went beyond pleased. Was he flattered?

Or… smug?

  2. I’ve never quite understood *what* the misspent wish was. Is that something I missed, or yet to be revealed? I went back and read the first several chapters and couldn’t find it.

  3. She is so spot on about getting into him. The more she watches his colors, the more she hones in on his Inner feelings. I’m sure there is a lot of smug in the way Sessh is feeling at the moment. He loves being stroked.
