Chapter 188: Trying

The situation bordered on the absurd. “Erm… Sesshoumaru-sama? Too close.”

Sesshoumaru did ease away. A little.

He looked so grim, but his stripes wavered between magenta and several kinds of purple. So he was probably mostly curious.

“Do it again,” he demanded.

“Do what?”

“Think about me.”

“I am.” Really, it was hard not to, close as he was.

“It is not the same.”

Kagome sighed and tried, “Do you ever daydream?”

He hummed.

“Daydreams sort of wander… relying on imagination instead of intellect. So I was thinking about you, but I wasn’t thinking.”

Sesshoumaru quietly insisted, “You will try.”

  2. Baybeeeeeeeeeee. It’s nice to see the curious side of Sesshoumaru displayed so openly, it’s so cute and refreshing. Also, have I ever mentioned how much I love the “Daydreaming Sesshoumaru” headcanon? I tell you, the first time I read it in, I think it was Imperceptible, I stared at my screen with my mouth hanging open for a good minute. It just //makes sense//. I still think about it, more than I’d like to admit. So many things from your stories are just *so iconic*, (“When he met her eyes, she understood. He let her fall”, “friendship IS the bridge”, the “someone to protect” plan, Sesshoumaru accepting her tea cup with two hands…this is only Imperceptible, I could literally go on forever. Don’t even get me started on Lord Charming) it’s amazing. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, LOVE THAT
