Mood Stripes 217: Unsure

Chapter 217: Unsure

Inuyasha wasn’t worried when he found the spring and its surroundings abandoned.

No signs of trouble.

Clear trail to follow.

Running through the night with the scent of Kagome’s shampoo to guide him, he figured out where Kohaku was taking Sesshoumaru.

But the trail veered off.

And the riverbank smelled venomous.

Imagination racing, he pushed his speed, arguing with himself all the while. Can’t be trouble. Can it?

Dawn was still a while off when Inuyasha neared the clearing. Unsure what he’d find, he slowed to a walk.

Shishi’s head lifted.

Sesshoumaru beckoned.

Inuyasha could only mutter, “What the hell?”
