“I will consider it.”
Hours had passed since Sesshoumaru uttered those four words, and he was still considering them. And still, he had no answer.
Not long after midnight, Kagome came to sit at his side. “I’ll tell you a secret,” she offered.
Fingers brushed his arm, and Sesshoumaru trapped her hand under his. He searched her upturned face, waiting.
“Sometimes, it’s easier to smile after you’ve had a good cry.”
